Add a dash of color with this throwback modernist design. The subtle partial arch curves present on the top of the right hand facing sliding door and 5 pull out drawers are signatures of the designs introduced by Arne Vodder in the late 50's and early 60's. The middle of the century modernism was at its peak. It was a time when color was beginning to be mixed into furniture designs in concert with natural wood surfaces. The Centurist sideboard is an exceptional example of this coordination. Centurist features two left hand facing sliding drawers which conceal a large storage space for dishes, media or whatever you wish to classically conceal. The body of Centurist is perched on top of a 4 legged modernism solid wood base. 5 colorful rail glide center drawers and 1 right hand facing ash door complete the design. * Design Detail: Ash wood veneer * Materials: MDF, Ash Veneer, Solid Wood Ash Legs * Design Detail: Modernism Base * Design Detail: 1959 Color drawer and door package * Construction Detail: Drawers interiors in matching ash veneer * Construction Detail: Doors operate on metal base rails * Construction Detail: Drawers operate on metal glides * Dimensions: 63" Width x 16" Depth x 26" Height * Assembly: Some assembly required The inherent nature of solid and real wood veneers mean that wood grain and colour may vary. Inconsistencies should be expected and appreciated. Arne Vodder was born in Denmark in 1926 and passed in 2009. He is widely recognized as one of the great designers of the modernist movement. Over the years his classic modern designs touched all aspects of furniture from the office to the bedroom. His works with wood gained worldwide recognition for their modern timeless designs. Perhaps his most recognized designs are the sideboards he created during the 1950's and 1960's. Vodder experimented with the combination of solid color formica surfaces and natural wood surfaces in many of his most noted modernism designs. Many of the original designs from that period can still be purchased at high end auction houses and regularly fetch tickets prices in excess of $20,000.
