Polish-born, French-raised Maurice Calka’s most celebrated and influential design is his iconic Boomerang Desk, produced circa 1969.

Composed of molded fiberglass—a super high-tech process at the time—the Boomerang was manufactured as a limited edition by the French firm Leleu-Deshavs. The exact quantity of the edition has been lost to history. What is known for sure is that the desk has acquired a number of high profile admirers—French President Georges Pompidou had a white version in the Elysée Palace, and Kanye West has one in his Hollywood home. This delightfully Pop yellow version features three drawers on the right side and a vertical storage space on the left.
