AFRODITE SPECCHIO

The Greek goddess of beauty lends her name to Afrodite, the modern desk designed by Carlo Ballabio for Porada. The frame is entirely made of solid Canaletta walnut – available in natural, Moka or Wengé stained versions, as well as matt lacquered in all the colours of the collection – and is completed by a three-drawer module that can be positioned on the right or left side according to one’s needs. The availability of the top in many finishes and natural materials – wood, leather, marble and glass- makes the Afrodite desk suitable for any kind of location of different taste and style, from the most modern to the most classic.
In the wooden and leather top version, is possible to add a fixed mirror element, which can be replaced with the free-standing version, suitable for all types of tops.
