Chest of Drawers by Tove & Edvard Kindt Larsen
An elegant beech wood chest of drawers designed by Tove & Edvard Kindt-Larsen circa 1950. In the late-1920s Both Tove & Edvard studied under Professor Kaare Klint, at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where they learnt the importance of proportions -both historic and those informed by anthropometrics.
The Kindt-Larsen’s developed a more contemporary expression throughout the 1950s and were known/are remembered for their awareness of current trends.
Another characteristic of Kindt-Larsen furniture is a contrast between the materials used. This can be seen in this chest of drawers in the way that the nut-brown coloured mahogany handles & skirt contrast with the blonde beech shell of the chest.
The three lowest drawers offer a great amount of general storage. The top drawer is can be used for smaller items and the front can be dropped to create a desk space. Similarly, the second drawer down features a foldout out vanity mirror and an area for storing beauty products.
Each aspect of this practical and superbly made chest is in excellent condition.
