Beautifully Proportioned Rosewood Cabinet in Two Sections by Ole Wanscher

About

Beautifully Proportioned Rosewood Cabinet in Two Sections by Ole Wanscher. “Addition Cabinet” in two sections, each with four drawers, mounted on a loose frame. Cabinetmaker A.J. Iversen. Designed 1959. Literature: Ole Wanscher, "Furniture designed by Ole Wanscher for A.J. Iversen," in “mobilia”, no. 130, May 1966, unpaginated, a similar two section cabinet in Oregon pine is illustrated. Grete Jalk, ed., "40 Years of Danish Furniture Design: The Copenhagen Cabinet-makers’ Guild Exhibitions 1927-1966", Copenhagen, 1987, vol. 1V, 1957-1966, pp. 92-93, illustrated. Information on the cabinet: Ole Wanscher’s innovative system of elegantly proportioned cabinets allows for the interchange of units of identical size but with various drawer and storage solutions. Cabinets can be added together in various configurations, either top of each other or on loose frames. The result is a system that can be tailored to many different size constraints within a room as well as storage needs. A review of the system when it was first shown at the 1959 Copenhagen Cabinet Makers’ Guild Exhibition describes it as follows: “Ole Wanscher’s sectional storage units seem conventional and at the same time new, and the dimensions are slighter than is usual for storage systems of this kind. Each unit consists of a number of drawers for all the small things which are such an important part of life. Pipes and tobacco, cameras with equipment and other toys of the costly variety which are not supposed to be left in the middle of a large, wide desk drawer where they will be shuttled about five times a day whenever one needs to get the pipe cleaner. One suspects that the designer himself has needed a piece of furniture like this in which each item may be put in its proper place. The design of the beautifully proportioned system is simple with unobtrusive profiles on the front of the drawers. The craftsmanship, executed by A.J. Iversen, is excellent and the proportions are very Fine indeed.”.
