Nils Jonsson, Cabinet, 1955

Cabinet by Nils Jonsson for Troeds.

The Nils Jonsson cabinet stands out from other case furniture from the postwar period through material and design. Few cabinets were made from solid wood, and less again made in solid oak. The use of rosewood and tropical hardwoods were generally favoured for their exotic and decorative veneers and constructed in blockboard, ply and chipboard.

The Nils Jonsson cabinet celebrates the enduring quality of oak and uses solid material with cabinet-making distinction through finger joints across the top and side panels.

The design and production further excel with tambour doors and circular-cut recesses to drawer fronts.

Despite the cabinet-making exuberance, the sideboard remains a quietly modern combination of linear patterns punctuated with the round brass drawer pulls.

The Swedish designer Nils Jonasson worked for both Danish and Swedish producers in the post-war period. Much of his output was storage furniture, all in typically restrained hand writing. 

The cabinet has a circular hole cut into the rear panel for cable management, which is a non-original post-production.
