DANISH MODERN TEAK TAMBOUR-DOOR SIDEBOARD
Designed by Dyrlund, Denmark, circa 1960s
Item # 109IIO18J
A very well-preserved low sideboard credenza designed and executed by Dryland of Denmark in the 1960s, it features an all-over teak surface with disappearing tambour doors that operate using sculpted solid teak handles to reveal a shelved interior on either side flanking a pair of drawers and some storage space. This originally would have been three drawers, but one has since gone absent leaving only two drawers and a tidy storage area beneath.
There is a degree of attention to detail exhibited in this earlier model that is immediately self-evident and perhaps speaks to why it has remained in such good condition. The structure itself is sturdy almost to a fault with the bold sculpted legs and base raising a superstructure with the same generous sculpted teak frame. It is unusually heavy and will last beyond our lifetime if it remains well-cared for.
The original Dyrlund seal is retained in the cabinet interior. Bold and robust, it is a statement piece with powerful proportions that immediately capture your attention.
