Carl Gustaf Hiort af Ornäs 'Välipala' Grand Library


Carl Gustaf Hiort af Ornäs for Huonekalu Mikko Nupponen, 'Välipala' bookcase, teak, lacquered wood , Finland, 1950s.

Designed by the Finnish designer Carl Gustaf Hiort, this wall unit is an architectural masterpiece constructed from various wooden elements, resulting in a clear, architectural piece that is flexible in use. A pair of black tripod legs hold a substantial teak shelf, its warm tones contrasting elegantly with the surrounding elements. Above, a white shelving system takes center stage that is completely adjustable and can therefore be arranged in such a manner that the user will suit best. The open construction allows the user to display objects such as books and glassware to one’s taste in this light shelf design.
Please note this item is in good, used condition with signs of age and use, such as visible wear and the white lacquer needs to be redone. Restoration is possible before shipping by our experienced craftsman and -women in our own in-house restoration atelier. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece retains its value and is ready for the many years to come. We kindly ask you to contact our design experts for further information about the endless possibilities our restoration and upholstery atelier has to offer. Of course, a locally organized restoration is possible as well.
