Rare Sideboard Cabinet by Grete Jalk

On Hold
$16,000

About

Jalk designed rosewood cabinet-sideboard. Designed by the prolific Danish designer and architect Grete Jalk, and fabricated in lavish rosewood by P. Jeppesen in 1960. Jalk is one of the few woman ever to be classed with the Scandinavian design elite--a reputation she built over four decades, spurred by innovation, superior design and the seamless ability to tailor her designs and environments to meet the ever-changing public needs. Though one can see the influence of Danish master Kaare Klint, whom she studied under at the Royal Academy of Arts, Jalk herself served as a significant source of inspiration for many young female Scandinavian designers. The item for sale is one of most unique and striking three-piece cabinet storage units we have ever seen, consisting of two beautifully crafted side-units with sliding doors, while the central third unit has fourteen lateral drawers. If this exceedingly rare item (of which only a handful were produced) wasn’t spectacular enough—it's association will rival any Jalk piece the market has ever seen. The Cabinet is from the very home of Jalk’s primary manufacturer P. Jeppesen. It is quite likely the 1st issue/production of this remarkable piece, and something he proudly displayed in his living room throughout his entire life until his passing when we acquired it. Jalk always believed that design and technology should make things easier and reduce the complexity of everyday life. Her designs always aimed at allowing people more time and freedom to do the things they enjoy. We feel proud to offer a piece with such heritage and beauty. Immaculate condition.
