Model 65 by Skovby Møbelfabrik

Inquire about this item


A famous design from makers Skovby, well recognised internationally by Danish Modern collectors and enthusiasts- and for good reason. A beautifully designed sideboard in solid and veneered teak with special attention to detail particularly in the mitred corners and bevelled leading edges of the cabinet.

Front sliding doors are surfaced with a crown cut teak, mirrored horizontally and vertically to spectacular optical effect when either side cupboard is open. Form follows function in the design of door and louvred drawer handles, keeping unnecessary decoration to a minimum. This aesthetic maxim is a major factor in the ongoing appeal of Danish Modernism from this period, whereby minimalism allowed the designs to avoid becoming dated by the popular decorative details of the day.

This piece is in excellent condition with the original finish bearing only the occasional very light scratch, consistent with age. This sideboard has been very well preserved and as such we are delighted to be able to present this renowned example of Danish Modern design to New Zealand.
