Gilbert Rohde (1894 – 1944) designed this iconic drop front desk for the Herman Miller Furniture Company in 1934. Clad in exotic veneers of East Indian Laurel, the cabinet has door pulls of semi-circular chrome plated steel and ebonized wood. The interior compartments are of blond wood and the exterior has one door, three drawers and a drop front shelf. Known as Number 3425, the secretary desk is 41” high x 32” wide and 15” deep. It is pictured in Gilbert Rohde Modern Design by Leslie Pina and in Gilbert Rohde, Modern Design for Modern Living by Phyllis Ross..
