6434 - Retro Mid Century Danish Sideboard H. W. Klein Design for Bramin – Sliding Doors
Henry Walter Klein followed the Danish design aesthetic of well proportioned, well-crafted forms; pieces that appeared to float while also being perfectly grounded and balanced, resulting in stunning visual impact. Klein moved to Denmark from Norway in 1949 to study interior design at the Tekniske Skole in Frederikberg, where he trained under renowned designer Finn Juhl. Upon completing his education, he moved back to Norway to open his own business designing furniture and interiors. He returned to Denmark in 1960, working closely with furniture manufacturer Bramin. This superb example of his work features;
- teak timber & teak timber veneer construction
- circa 1960’s
- superb wood grain figuring
- 2 sliding doors that glide neatly over the centre drawers to reveal additional storage
- 4 central dovetail-joined drawers
- exquisitely crafted inset timber handles
- 2 fully height adjustable timber shelves (removable)
- fabulously shaped & tapered legs
- makers label (partially removed); Bramin Design Denmark, Made in Denmark
Condition overview; in good condition relative to its age, it is a high quality, beautifully crafted, extremely solid and sturdy sideboard. All of the drawers and both sliding doors work seamlessly. As expected on a used piece of this vintage, it displays general wear, knock and surface marks (including and particularly to the left-hand side of the top), and marks on the front left-hand side leg.
Dimensions; 2275mm wide x 460mm deep x 800mm high. Internal depth; 415mm.
Please review the photos and the condition overview as they form part of the description. There may be variances in colour, as it can be difficult to capture exact colour at times. Also, it is impossible to mention / photograph every mark, therefore apart from general wear and tear marks, we endeavour to report and capture as many specific marks or damage, however we may inadvertently miss something. With this in mind; we encourage and highly recommend viewing of items.
