Piergil Fourquié's Big Boss desk draws inspiration from architecture that uses the cantilever principal, with a lacquered metal skirt that provides a solid volume "on which the entire desk depends."

Says Fourquié, "This support contrasts with the light oak suspended top which juts out over an empty space."
"The choice of material is a metaphor for a 'sports coupe' car: the metallic exterior reflects the immediate environment and hides the user's legs."
"The refined topstitched leather interior creates a warm protective cocoon. The elegance of the lines hides all that is to be hidden: computer cables, electric wires, drawer."
