Teak chest of drawers with chrome recessed pulls, designed by Gordon Bunschaft and manufactured by De Coene for the Belgium Lambert Bank, circa 1960. The credenza features seven drawers with a lock on the side. The piece is finished on all sides so it can also work well as a room divider. The inside is completely veneered in oak.
Gordon Bunshaft is an important American architect. Inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, he is adept at a Minimalist style. In 1952, he built the “Lever House”, the first skyscraper in Manhattan that is composed mainly of glass, for which he received the Pritzker Prize in 1988.
