Here’s another piece of luxury to give that billionaire who has everything, a $60,000 Hermès folding desk/trunk. This multiple function portable desk named Coffre à Lutrin is part of the eight-piece Les Nécessaires d’Hermès collection Hermès introduced to US market this year.

Created by French designer Phillipe Nigro for Hermès, the leather steamer trunk inspired desk not only ideal for space challenged small areas, in a moment’s notice the desk is ready to fold like a trunk and be moved. Made to highest quality, the desk’s sleek Canaletto walnut comes wrapped in beautiful caramel-colored leather. The three-part desk features an adjustable magazine holder in leather, pull tabs and handles.

Designed to accommodate modern day office equipment like small laptops, smartphones and tablets, Phillipe Nigro explained the thinking behind his creations “The idea was to think about really useful, quotidian objects that you use maybe without thinking that you are using them. It’s an object you have to discover.”
