With more than a hundred years of history, WK Wohnen is one of the oldest brands in the furnishing industry. The origin of the company is the “Interest Group of German Workshops for Apartment Art”, which Arthur Schubert founded in 1912 as an association of furniture stores in Düsseldorf. The aim of the association was to promote the general understanding of modern, quality-oriented facilities through education and own designs. In the following year the brand “WK-Möbel” was introduced. At that time the range consisted mainly of bedrooms, study and dining rooms.

Paul Griesser was appointed artistic advisor in the 1920s; The first WK assembly furniture came from his pen. After a forced dissolution due to the war in 1944, Erwin Hoffmann re-founded the WK group four years later. Otto Beringer designed the “WKS 1” program in 1949 and thus laid the foundation for economic recovery. Models such as the “WK-Satink” living range by Georg Satink or the first dismantlable furniture program “WKS 8 – Constructa” (both 1952) were further important design developments.

This model 468 desk is well known design of Georg Satink and as beautiful on each visible side. Good condition consistent with age and use.
