Details and Condition:: A rosewood chest of drawers designed by Arne Vodder and produced by Sibast Møbler in the 1960's. Arne Vodder was trained as a cabinetmaker and architect, he studied under Finn Juhl at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, graduating in 1947. After school, he worked as a designer at Hindsgaul in Copenhagen, focusing primarily on office décor. In 1950, Vodder launched his own architecture and design studio with architect Anton Borg. Together, the two designed furniture as well as several low-cost houses. Vodder and Borg collaborated until the 1970s. Vodder is best known for his furniture designs, which tended to be simple pieces composed of natural materials such as rosewood and teak, often inspired by the natural forms, and occasionally accented with colorful panels. Vodder worked with several respected brands throughout his career, designing cabinetry, tables, seating, and more for furniture makers like Fritz Hanson, France & Søn, Nielaus and Sibast.
