To modernize a very traditional home office space, the client wanted to go with a simple and clean look.  The shelves were built using a torsion grid, which is a core of 1/2" thick poplar interlaced into a grid and capped with 1/2" MDF making a very ridged panel. The desk top has a top of 3/8" glass.  The two drawers are set up for hanging files.
Finished with white lacquer.
