Mansu Iron & Mango Wood Desk

£2,169

This desk has three iron metal drawers finished in distressed rust and black, that are complemented by the natural hues of the sustainable mango wood surface. The Mango trees are initially grown for their fruit, harvested over a number of years. Once the trees have stopped bearing fruit, they can be cut down and used to make these wooden pieces, which allows farmers to plant more trees and provides them with a supplementary income.
