Corrugated Desk

The Corrugated Desk was designed as the sales desk for the Dunstone Design showroom in 2009. The original (pictured) was made from fumed Tasmanian myrtle that Evan and Fenella Dunstone bought while on their honeymoon in 1996. The myrtle, which was stored under corrugated iron, survived the 1998 fire that destroyed David MacLaren’s workshop.

The original Corrugated Desk (pictured) was made from fumed Tasmanian myrtle. We bought the myrtle while on our honeymoon in 1996 and stored it under sheets of corrugated iron in the bush around David MacLaren’s workshop (David MacLaren is the owner of the Bungendore Wood Works Gallery and trained Evan Dunstone). When the workshop was destroyed by fire in 1998, the only timber to survive was this myrtle, protected by the humble “corro”.

In 2009, the first Dunstone Design showroom was opened in Fyshwick. Evan decided that it was fitting to make the sales desk from the remaining "honeymoon myrtle". The corrugated design of the legs were a homage to the humble tin that had protected this beautiful timber and the fuming (which darkened the colours and emphasised the figuring) was a reference to the fire.

In 2019, the Corrugated Desk was considered by BB Productions to represent the Australian Prime Minister’s desk in the ABC mini-series Black B*tch staring Rachel Griffiths and Deborah Mailman. Director Rachel Perkins was “really keen on [the Corrugated] desk” but unfortunately the scale of the desk did not fit the scale of the set and the desk was not used. Dunstone Design furniture has been used in film before, most notably in the Jack Irish series staring Guy Pearce.

The desk pictured has been in constant use since 2009.
