Danish Teak Credenza by Gunni Oman for Axel Christensen Odder Mobler

About

Absolutely massive, midcentury Scandinavian Modern Danish teak credenza by Gunni Oman for Axel Christensen Odder Mobler. Made in Denmark, vintage 1960s, teak wood construction. This cabinet as a prime example of expert Scandinavian cabinet making with carved pull sliding doors that operate with ease. Glide these doors to the left or right to reveal the interior space. The column of Arne Vodder style felt-lined drawers are proudly displayed and flanked by the solid teak pulls that resemble medieval swords. There is no want for storage in this extra long teak credenza. The left and rights sides have an open space with a single, removable or adjustable height teak shelf. Signature Danish styling here with sculpted. Tapered edge banding. Ideal for use as an entertainment console or sideboard buffet. Please take note: Although the sliding doors looks amazing, we actually replaced one of the doors. This credenza originally had a single door with a carved lip style pull (unlike the sword style) that cracked off. We harvested (2) sword style pulls from another Oman credenza and created a replacement door that looks even better than the original (in our opinion). Not only did our restoration team do an amazing job detailing this Danish teak bookcase, but they restored the top and mitigated nearly all the flaws on top. Only very minor imperfections remain.

About Arne Vodder (Designer)

Along with Vernor Panton, 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 Danish craftsmanship to a modern furniture idiom.

     As a graduate student in architecture trained by 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 cabinets and storage pieces — sideboards, 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 these pages, Arne Vodder had a sense of what kind of design was appropriate for which space: sobriety in the boardroom; playfulness at home.
