Vintage Tanker Desks


"Bold, industrial and nearly indestructible, the Tanker Desk was most often confined to utilitarian uses in mid-century Americana. Today its streamlined craftsmanship earns a whole new appreciation amongst collectors and designers who are restoring this well-built classic and updating its look with modern hues. This is what Retro Office is all about.

Since 1946, the Tanker desk has been manufactured the same way - made of thick gauge steel that is practically immortal, reliable, and simple; but elegant in any setting. The Tanker Desk was the largest selling commercial desk in the world and well suited for schools, offices and governmental institutions up until the 1980s.
