This beautiful and rare teak desk is design of Svend Aage Madsen, manufactured by Sigur Hansen Møbelfabrik in the 1950s.
The gorgeous piece is characterised by its curved shape and features bamboo detailing on both the legs and draw handles. With six drawers at its front and an open bookcase at its back, the desk is superbly functional whilst maintaining the architectural brilliance of Mid-Century Danish design.
About the Designer:
As is the case for many Scandinavian designers from the mid-century period, little biographical information on Danish designer Svend Åge Madsen has survived. What is known has been gleaned from vintage dealers working with limited archival materials, like sales catalogues.
Outside of Nordic countries, the designer’s name is often written "Svend Aage Madsen”.
While some rare designs date from the late 1950s, the overwhelming majority of Madsen’s furniture was designed in the 1960s. Madsen’s creations epitomize the Danish modern style: he favoured warm teak and rosewood, organic silhouettes, and minimal decorative details. More specific features of his work include “boomerang” legs; sloped, arching desk drawers; and “floating” desk tops.
