The Tanker Single Pedestal Desk

A place to imagine, create and exceed.


The Tanker Single Pedestal desk. Both solid and practical with a commanding appearance.

Inspired by the traditional sheet metal American Tanker desks that were mass-produced from the 1940s until the 1970s and were widely used within the military.

Design and construction.

The hand-fabricated base is made from precision laser cut hot rolled mild steel which has a beautiful patina. Each panel is riveted together offering a traditional exposed industrial look. The top frame is made from 50 x 50 mm iron which is fully welded and supports the solid Oak or Walnut top. The desk is available in a range of configurations including open face cupboards, drawers or cupboards. The privacy panel includes a large cable tray and various cable holes throughout the desk make cable management easy.
