PA’ 1947 is a sculptural piece that lends itself to sumptuous entrance halls or to small home offices; the ideal designer desk for smart working.
The idea for this desk cum console table, designed by Ico Parisi in 1947 for a private client, stemmed from a few lines drawn on a sheet of paper. From a horizontal line and two oblique lines, a perfectly proportioned, fluid, organic solid wood console took shape. Cassina
has respected and enhanced the heart of this project by combining technology with craftsmanship, typical of the company’s carpentry workshop. The result is a refined solid wood console table embellished with metal details that adapts to all rooms in the home.
Its rectangular plane has four straight notched recesses on the two longest sides, near the extremities, within which, like real joints, the tips of the characteristic divergent “Y” shape upper arms of the legs, available in ash or Canaletto walnut, are screwed and bound two by two to
a shaped crossbar. Balance and strength are guaranteed by two oblique turned solid wood elements, joined diagonally to the crossbar and embedded in the structure below.
- Solid wood structure
- Fir frame wood top with MDF panel, and honeycomb paper. Veneered in the finishes indicated.
- Brass details available in the finishes indicated

With the instinct to foretell today what will become a classic tomorrow, Cassina has been designing the future of interiors for over 90 years. Founded by brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina in 1927, the company is credited with launching industrial design in post-war Italy.
