Dorrington secretaire by Robert Heritage.

The Dorrington secretaire reflects Heritages’ typically subtle and functional design vocabulary, utilising classical precedents for small writing tables. The arrangement of drawers is formal and purposeful. The top shelf with raised frame creating a hierarchy of open and closed storage, suiting the act of letter writing.

The desk was manufactured by Archie Shine and uses solid and veneered rosewood. The luxurious and decorative wood contrasts with green vinyl writing surface.

Robert Heritage was awarded more COID (Council Of Industrial Design) design awards by the Design Council than any other British designer in the 20th Century. His worked extended from industrial products, to lighting and one off commissions such as furniture for the QE2. Heritage was acknowledged as Royal Designer for Industry, awarded a CBE and was professor of furniture at the Royal College of Art.
