Gloria Cortina describes the design of the Ivy writing desk as a ‘portrait’ which captures the aspects of human physical movement. The desk stands on black bronze legs and has an ice-white onyx top. The desk’s ‘shoulder’ and ‘foot’ accentuate human asymmetry and question how desks should look and be used. Gloria Cortina’s work evokes the harmony that exists in our own complexity and contrast. She manipulates volume and proportion, space, texture, color, and shadow or light, to motivate the senses and stimulate conversation in each piece. Her conviction in this regard speaks to the permanence of her design, both in the creation of a lasting product and within the greater context of her milieu evolving a Mexican aesthetic movement.
