He designed the portable desk with French luxury company Goyard, which made it. The resulting item was roughly the same size and weight as an ordinary travel trunk but would unfold into a writing desk with table, bookcase, typewriter and storage space.

Only seven were made, two of which are owned by Goyard. One is in a French museum while the whereabouts of another is unknown.

Three others are in private collections, including this example now offered by Timothy Oulton, a furniture and accessories designer.
