Lectern, quartersawn white oak, white oak, poplar

Mexican architect Luis Barragan designed several versions of this lectern, one of which is in his famous 1948 house and studio in Mexico City, which he used to display his books and prints.  The design is an interesting mix of modernist and ecclesiastic styles with the massive white oak timbers forming the base.  The original is deceptively large, over 4 ft. wide and deep.
