About

Iconic executive desk with return from the “200 series” designed by Arne Vodder; one of the best designers Denmark has known and it is manufactured by Sibast Furniture, Denmark 1960. This luxurious corner desk features a lot of storage space and shows wonderful details that are very well executed. The solid rosewood legs are slightly tapered, which is a subtle yet important detail. The well-proportioned frame holds the drawer cabinet and return that beautifully seem to be floating underneath the top. The desk is suited with one lockable drawer unit with two drawers. Very nice details are the dovetail joinery and refined drawer handles. The rising solid edges on the left and right side beautifully finish the top. The very nice grain and color of the rosewood wood give this writing desk a very warm expression. The return has a sliding door, five black lacquered drawers, a hidden trash can and another door at the back. The original drawers of the return are a very playful and frivolous addition to this high-quality piece. This beautiful desk is in excellent condition, the top is restored and finished with a high quality UV and water protective lacquer with preservation of authenticity. Marked with manufacturers label inside of a drawer. An incredibly decorative and centre piece for any modern home, office or interior.

About the Designer

Arne Vodder

Along with Vernor Panton, cabinetmaker and architect Arne Vodder was a leading light of what might be called the “second generation” of forward-thinking 20th-century Danish furniture designers — those who, following in the footsteps of Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl and others, first applied the skills, traditions and philosophical tenets of Scandinavian craftsmanship to a modern furniture idiom.

As a graduate student in architecture trained by pioneering furniture designer Finn Juhl, Vodder made his mark in the 1960s, when modern design had gained wide acceptance, particularly in the business world. Accordingly, many of Vodder's chairs are quiet in form — projecting an air of sturdiness and strength, rather than avant-garde styling.

Vodder’s aesthetic flair was very pronounced in his vintage cabinets and storage piecessideboards, bookcases, credenzas and buffets. In such pieces, Vodder liked to play with asymmetry. His bookcases often have a seemingly random array of variously sized shelves and nooks. A typical Vodder sideboard might have four sections, each different in purpose and look: an open stack of vertical shelves, and other cupboards covered with sliding panels in contrasting colored laminates and wood veneers.

As you will see from the works on 1stDibs, Arne Vodder had a sense of what kind of design was appropriate for which space: sobriety in the boardroom; playfulness at home.
