Before printing was invented, the books were heavy, bulky objects, had a leather cover and parchment pages, and needed solid support to be read. Writing was also a more complex action than it is today, as it required pen and ink. Thus a piece of furniture was born to read and write: the writing office.
The first specimens were simple support planes consisting of an inclined axis; over the centuries these furniture evolved in form and functionality to adapt to new needs: they were enriched with doors and drawers to allow books, stationery and important documents to be kept as well.
Today an ancient writing house fits into the house as a pleasant piece of furniture and great charm, but it is much more than a piece of furniture: it is a historical object, which has gone through the centuries passing from generation to generation; the oldest have been handmade and are real masterpieces of art.
