About

Executive desk in teak designed by Arne Vodder for Sibast in the 1960s. Arne Vodder was one of the foremost Danish designers of the 20th century making many iconic pieces including chairs and cabinets. He is probably best well known for his sideboards and desks, of which this is a perfect example. Made using the finest materials and using his Minimalist ethos, the desk features six drawers on the front (lockable and key included), with Vodder's trademark rounded design, and bookshelves on the rear. Vibrant hued teak grain throughout this piece. This desk is in a very good vintage condition and apart from some minor marks is in great shape for its vintage.

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.
