Dieter Waeckerlin for Behr Sideboard in Teak and Maple with Metal Base
Dieter Waeckerlin for Behr, sideboard, teak, metal, maple, Switzerland, 1950s.
This modest sideboard holds an utterly well-balanced construction concealing a great sense of proportions. The whole design is based on an elongated body executed in teak, offering a variety of different storage possibilities. The front consists of a striking checkered pattern consisting of various wooden patches illustrating different grains, coming from the same tree trunk. This graphical visualization adds a wonderful rhythmic and haptic surface to the front. The interior is made of maple featuring shelves and drawers that can be arranged to your own wishes. The metal frame is simple and understated, where clear, straight lines are allowed to emerge in the design. The texture and warm tones of the teak make sure that the room gets a vibrant and lively ambience.
