De Coene, cabinet, plywood, aluminum, Belgium, 1970s.
This Postmodern cabinet is manufactured by De Coene and is furnished with aluminium plated doors and handles. The cabinet is divided in four asymmetrical doors of which the biggest is folding downwards revealing a bright orange interior. The frame and body of this high board is made of black colored wood contrasting the aluminium doors in an elegant manner. This eccentric piece of furniture is a true ambassador of the Minimal movement of the early seventies.
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, there were still world famous for their meticulously detailed, high-quality and Art Deco inspired furniture.
