In the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar my attention was drawn by this writing desk made in 1924 by Erich Dieckmann. Somewhere in my mind did a bell ring, I had seen this before, it looked so familiar.
Well I have a similar one in my own house! I inherited the writing desk of my father. When my sister and I had to tidy up a house with two floors and an attic after my mother died, I decided to take the desk home.
I had good memories my father sitting there to prepare his work as a teacher and I liked to have a real wooden desk instead of a modern Ikea one. My parents were married in 1939 and always had rather modern furniture in their home, so I think they liked the sleep shape of the desk.
The same details at the sides.
This is me with my father in 1948. I realise now that today May 22 was his birthday and as he was born in 1914 it is exactly100 years ago!
