Folding Mummenthaler & Meier "Magic Box" Desk

Certified Price





Posted on April 15, 2018.

For sale is a mid century walnut folding cabinet desk designed by Swiss architects Mummenthaler & Meier in the 1920s and reproduced in the 1960s and 1970s.

This unassuming walnut cabinet opens into a complete fold-out office including a writing desk and several shelves, drawers and trays, almost like a danish / scandinavian secretary desk. The interior fixtures are crafted from solid maple and the layout of shelves, etc is flexible and great for storage. The original blue task lamp switches on automatically when you swing it out from the cabinet, a nice, sweet touch! The condition is very good—the desktop was recently refinished and is in perfect condition, while the top of the cabinet has a bit of discoloration and flaking commensurate with it’s age. I don’t have the key to the lock.

Width 32.5 " closed, 65" open
Depth 21"
Height 46"

I have a car and could deliver to Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan for $100
