In the process of designing the desk I considered different materials and colors, which I discussed with my client. Ultimately I chose the dark cherry red and the bright blue, because of the client’s preferences. The light colors would have clashed with the rest of the furniture in the room.
I was looking for a feel of calmness and cool, which comes from the blue. Blue is also a chakra color for communication, something essential for a writer. The red color on the inside would have created the opposite feel.
