Mid-Century Modern Vintage Scandinavian Brutalist Birch Sideboard, 1960s
Rare Birchwood sideboard made in Scandinavia during the 1960s.
Delivering From: Warsaw, PL
This rare sideboard was made in Scandinavia during the 1960s. It is finished with birch wood with a strong and irregular grain and a characteristic earthy color, where browns and grays merge in contrasts of varying intensity. This sideboard has two cabinets with shelves. In the middle, there is a vertically opening bar cabinet. The wooden, long handles are made of teak and emphasize the strong design of the furniture. The base is made of wooden legs with a rounded finish. The piece of furniture is handmade, with attention to every detail. This is an example of a craftwork, probably created as a custom design. A detail that proves no mass production is, for example, a cutout in a shelf through which a barge hinge passes. To close it, you must slightly lift the hinge upwards. The brutal, raw form of the sideboard is combined with the modernist style of the base, which gives the design a lightness. Elements made of natural wood in a thoughtful and sustainable way tame heavy aesthetics. Noteworthy is also the edge, which is a contradiction to the popular method of furniture design. In this design, the edge extends beyond the frame of the furniture, facing the outside. This feature proves the high craftsmanship skills of the contractor, intelligence in the selection of materials and the no sterile thinking of the designer.
This sideboard has been restored and is in minted vintage condition.
