Model 302, designed by Peter Hvidt & Orla Molgaard Nielsen for John Stuart. True solid teak, no plywood or MDF (except for shelves and back panel). Our studio took over 200 shots of this piece because we had a hard time illustrating the exceptionalism of this cabinet. The finger joinery is clearly visible from a distance and adds to the overall charm while illustrating craftsmanship. The practicality and functionality of the washboard tambour doors speaks for itself. Notice the wild, flaring, cathedral teak grain exteriors, hand carved handles and rich, oxblood colored retractable tambour doors. These elements are the high water mark of Scandinavian cabinet making. The old growth trees that supplied manufacturers during the mid-century are long gone. Ideal as a record cabinet or bar, but versatile enough to fit seamlessly in any room of your home. The interior features open cabinet space and adjustable / removable shelves. As for the design, the two-tier orientation is uncommon. Rarely do we see a Danish cabinet with this layout.
Acquired from the original owner, this Peter Hvidt cabinet came with a bookcase and no base. Although conflicted about augmenting the originality, we ultimately decided to literally and figuratively elevate the tambour cabinet with a repurposed mahogany base we harvested from a another piece. The base was completely refinished to match the cabinet.
