We couldn't bear the thought of making a plain old walnut desk.
The Color Coated collection is our way of saying 'forget the neutrals and grays for a moment'. Allow yourself to be won over by something truly different.
Ruby U, Ultra Marine, and Lime In The Coconut cover the walls of Bronx studio and and now the cover these striking pieces, from edge to floor. 40 of each color and size are available now and then never again as part of this limited edition collection.
The works in the Elements collection span motifs from ultra-realism to abstract photography, playing endlessly with light and dark.
Friend and godfather of Chassie, Roger de Cabrol, draws upon his experience as Salvador Dali's apprentice to conjure intense meaning from basic shapes while Lindsey Reese, Tyler Comrie, and Stefano Pasqualetti push the boundaries of detail in large format abstractions.
We were first introduced to Niccolo Baldi and his algorithmic art works by architect and photographer Stefano Pasqualetti (a contributor to the Elements collection and Chassie founding designer). We fell in love with his take on the precious and transient nature of the seasons. Then he broke our computer.
Pieces in the Four Seasons collection are Chassie's most challenging and rare creations, with only four of each being made. The graphic detail in each one requires massive computing power to render and print, and the mirror finished aluminum is a gorgeous feat.
Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter are now available as part of a this limited edition collection - polished to mirrored perfection from edge to floor.
Each Limited Edition Desk is created in close partnership with one of New York's most exciting artists. From the legendary Milton Glaser - creator of the iconic I Love NY campaign - to up and comers, each desk tells a unique New York story.
Over a period of months we work together to faithfully reproduce the original and exclusive desktop graphics and powder coat the edges and legs to perfection. Only a limited quantity of each piece is made and each one is signed by the artist.
We hope you'll find greater creativity and passion in your life's work as you sit down at one of these wonderful workstations.
Milton Glaser is the legendary designer behind I Heart NY, New York Magazine, and Bob Dylan’s psychedelic greatest hits album covers. He is perhaps the most impactful and well known graphic designer ever.
We first met Milton at his studio in Chelsea when he unveiled his model for an original Chassie desk. Knowing there would be no notes or second guessing his work, we were anxious.
Milton’s exploration of Art Deco pattern making will set the tone for everything we do going forward. Thank you Milton for this masterpiece!

Niccolo's pieces are Chassie's most challenging and rare creations. The graphic detail in each one requires massive computing power to render and print, and the mirror finished aluminum is a gorgeous feat.
Niccolo's worksare now available in a variety of tables and desks - polished to mirrored perfection from edge to floor.
Aubrey and Jeremy were some of Chassie’s earliest collaborators and led the way in bold use of color to create this New York storyboard.
As illustrators and cartoonists with works features in The New Yorker, this duo has taken busker vignettes and turned them into a timeless set of images that anyone who has ever ridden the subway can recognize.
Adam Paskow and David Sutton are the principles and industrial designers at FriendsOf. You have almost certainly sat in, poured from, or cinched up their work at some point in your life, and Chassie would not exist without them.
Their thorough, imaginative approach to design and engineering led to Chassie's strong, lightweight, forever furniture concept. They bring the same rigor to Sundown - their original gradient work that tests the limits of printing tech as well as our expectations for what a work surface can be.
The standing desk revolution has come and Chassie has created the perfect way to integrate creativity and functionality into this new category.
Our standing desk tops are compatible with the major sit/stand frame makers and can be added on or swapped in to existing rigs. You simply buy the top from us and fit it on to your existing or new sit/stand rig. FACT: virtually all adjustable standing desks can purchased BYOT (Bring Your Own Top).
Complete with stunning prints on Remarkable Wood, these desk tops will bring color and originality to any home or office.
Italian architect, abstract photographer, and world traveler Stefano Pasqualetti is the godfather of the Chassie desk concept. From our earliest days working together, Stefano brought an integrated approach to industrial and graphic design.
Responsible for the iconic 'X' shape of the Chassie leg, Stefano worked to bring meaning and continuity to to every detail and facet of each work.
Stefano's Air brings an unmistakable feeling of lightness and serenity to any space. We think you'll fall in love it with just as we have.
These are the desks that started it all. These are the artists who took a risk and helped Chassie turn the desk into a work of art.
In a collection as diverse our city, the Originals is composed of the very first Chassie-exclusive works by artists, designers, illustrators, cartoonists, photographers, and architects from New York's most storied institutions.
Each work in the collection is named, numbered, and signed in a limited edition of 23 pieces per size.
