Airfoil Desk: From Sketch to Aluminum: Part I

The Airfoil Desk was something I envisioned building some time ago.  I set out to build a desk that was incredibly simple but also incredibly industrial.  I wanted to use metals and alloys not commonly used to build furniture today: aluminum, brass and copper.  The desk looks massive at its base but tapers down to a fine point at its opposing edge.  Above is a compilation of some of the early sketches made.  This was the first step we took to create the Airfoil Desk.
