Otto Schulz, bar cabinet with matching bar stools, Sweden, circa 1930s
This beautifully decorated bar piece was designed by Otto Schulz. It shows well-chosen proportions, with an open base and a well sized bar unit placed on top. The thin sides of the base are subtly detailed. The sides give the bar a light appearance, which is emphasized by the geometric pattern in the front. The copper nails make a refined decoration, and shows outstanding craftsmanship. The door hides an enlightened bar unit, and when the door is openend, it makes a horizontal platform to prepare cocktails and place drinks. The bar comes with two small matching square stools. The warm tone of the original faux leather works well with the comparable tone of the oak base.
Otto Schulz (1882-1970) was a German designer and architect schooled at the Technical University in Berlin-Charlottenberg and the Architectural School in Berlin amongst others. The majority of his career was however spent in Sweden. He worked as a draftsman and interior designer for several years after his arrival in Sweden. In 1920, he founded Boet together with Adolf Nordic Borg, the head of Nordiska Kompaniet's design offices, a company that came to be a well-established interior design shop that also published a magazine under the same name. Schulz design was often so inventive, that he patented some of his techniques such as his characteristic decorative brass nail designs referred to as Bopoint. His design is known for its capability to blend traditional elements and techniques with a modern style.
