Alex de Rouvray is featured in the September / October 2019 issue of the french edition of Architectural Digest. This edition focuses on the “New Parisian Spirit”, and highlights the Vaneau Writing Desk on page 52:

THE MINIMAL WRITING DESK. Its clean lines allow the richness of its materials to fully express their sensuality. The blending of steel, glass and wood creates harmonious contrasts, highlighted by the transparency of the tinted glass. Vaneau, 100x55x84cm 1190 euros, ALEX DE ROUVRAY”


The famed english design magazine ICON selected the Severin Line to feature in its 2013 ICON PRODUCT YEARBOOK showcasing the year’s most outstanding designs:


The funiture design blog ARTIBAZAR wrote an article on the Severin Desk 2 (which used to be called the Turenne Desk) in september 2015:

“A harmonious mix of materials for a sleek and minimal design.”

« The Turenne Desk consists of a tempered glass top resting on two powder coated steel trestles. Four drawers in plywood, veneered with premium oak, are housed in one of the two trestles. The trestle structure allows for easy storage and transportation. The minimal design of the steel base gives visual lightness to the desk, the tabletop seeming to float above its base.”
