De Coene Frères, wall-mounted bar cabinet model 'Madison', walnut, Belgium, 1958.
Floating wall-mounted dry bar in walnut by de Belgian manufacturer De Coene. The quality of pieces from these manufacturers are absolutely stunning and hold great details. The design is attributed to their designer Fred Sandra. Notable detail is the mirrored veneer doors displaying identical wood grains, truly magnificent. The cabinet is simple and understated, where clear, straight lines are allowed to emerge in the design. This item bears visual interest and can serve as a monument in your décor.
De Coene was founded in 1887 in Kortrijk (Belgium) by Jozef de Coene, who was at that time 13 years old. In 1895, his younger brother Adolphe joined the company. In their early years, De Coene was inspired by Henry van de Velde, Art Deco and the Arts & Crafts movement. The company made many custom made furnishings which leads to an expansive growth. After World War One, the brother visited the United States where they became acquainted with laminated wood production, and purchased a wood-stripping machine. They were the first company that made triplex in Belgium which led to the ability to mass produce. In 1954, they received the right to produce Knoll furniture. But although the company produced on a large-scale, they were still world famous for their meticulously detailed, high-quality and Art Deco inspired furniture.
