Designer: James Leonard
Manufacturer: Esavian for the Educational Supply Association, London
Manufacturers Location: Stevenage, Hertfordshire (UK)
Material: Cast aluminium alloy frame, beech ply underbelly and solid beech fixed top.

The desk reflects the manufacturing techniques of the 2nd World War. In common with Ernest Race, English Rose and other 'modernist' styled designs, it utilises aluminium casting technology developed for aircraft manufacture: modernism of a kind, strongly linked to necessity as many traditional materials were in short supply in the post-war years.
Rescued and restored.
