Acclaimed Danish designer Børge Mogensen wanted to create the best storage systems for Scandinavian families. He did studies to determine the standard measures for common objects, such as cutlery and shirts, and how many of each item the average person owned. With this information he developed a set of figures for the base width and depth of drawers and shelves, and his information tables were published as a manual on building storage systems. Between 1955 and 1968 he worked with Karl Andersson & Söner, designing the company’s first modern furniture series, 'Øresund' in 1955.
This gorgeous sliding-door cabinet was designed as part of the Øresund system, and could be used plain or with a shelving or glass-fronted cabinet top (see our other listing for the top section.) This line is known for the very high quality construction and careful choice of materials. Notice the oak door tracks: no plastic here! It features highly functional, completely customizable interior storage options. There are six removable drawers and two shelves. Both shelves and drawers can be rearranged however desired, since their supports are not fixed.
In excellent vintage condition. There is a slight chip on the back edge and a light scratches and a small dent on the top. This series was available with a variety of bases. We have re-created the original legs for this piece.
