Among Jacques Hitier’s desks, let’s focus in this chapter on one of his most memorable desk: Jacques Hitier Antony desk.
The name Antony is referring to the name of a French city where is located the student residence area for which Jacques Hitier designed several interior spaces.
This desk was first introduced in 1955 at the French design art fair called “Salon des arts ménagers”.
It was designed for the student rooms, as part of the interior design of the Antony-located student university.
Throughout the Industrial Design Mouvement, the minimalist style didn’t necessarily mean “heavy” design.
With this student desk, Jacques Hitier combines minimalist standards as well as simple and delicate outlines.
