Red dye teak credenza with chrome recessed pulls designed by Gordon Bunschaft and manufactured by De Coene for the Belgium Lambert Bank, circa 1960. The credenza features two drawers and four features two storage compartments with a single interior shelf, with a lock on the side. The piece is finished on all sides so it is also useable as a room divider. The interior is completely veneered in oak. The sideboard is in good condition and shows signs of age and use, which small scratches in the lacquer mainly on the top and near the doors.
