With a nod to classical Chinese cabinets, this teak sideboard finished with solid Bombay Rosewood handles designed by Kofod Larsen for G Plan is an absolute stunner.
Featuring simple and distinctive lines with the large split circular handles, Kofod Larsen’s original design dates from 1964 and was later revised, altering the under-frame. This model was made available for sale in 1966.
The right-hand cupboard contains a removable drinks tray, cutlery draw lined with grey felt and two further linen drawers while the left-hand cupboard has an adjustable shelf. The cabinet itself is set on an elegant framework which raises the main body 51cm from the floor.
Danish design great Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921 - 2003) made his name working for the world's best furniture companies like G-Plan and Faarup. His pieces combine minimal detail with graphic, organic contours.
The Danes have always loved Kofod-Larsen's work. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Denmark, Kofod-Larsen was quick to establish a reputation as one of the best designers both in Denmark and internationally.
In the UK his designs for G-Plan were marketed through the top of the line 'Danish' range. The pieces are arguably the best pieces G-Plan has produced. Today his creations sell for higher and higher prices, with his clean designs becoming highly coveted by design collectors.
In used condition, the sideboard does feature a few knocks, scuffs and scratches, all of which are commensurate with age and photographed above. The sideboard has been given a good clean and a fresh coat of oil, conditioning the wood and making it looks its very best once more.
Measures approximately 192cm long, 50.5cm deep and 110cm tall.
