Designed by Henry Walter Klein and manufactured by Bramin during the 1960's, this imposing 7ft credenza is an absolutely exquisite example of Danish Mid Century Modern design. Perfectly styled with soft, shaped corners, rounded edging and cube recessed handles, it also provides ample storage, with a central bank of four wide drawers flanked by two large cupboards with height-adjustable shelving and smooth-sliding doors. The back has been finished in teak veneer, so this piece could be positioned either against a wall or centrally as a divider in a larger living space. It is in near-perfect vintage condition inside and out, having been sensitively cleaned and repolished to enrich the stunning woodgrain and provide surface protection.
My items are all very carefully restored with every attention to detail. However they are hand-finished, pre-loved vintage pieces, so please expect characterful imperfections. This piece is in fabulous vintage condition overall. One drawer is felt lined, and shows signs of wear. More photos available by request.

Danish furniture manufacturer Bramin was founded by N.A. Jørgensen in Bramming, south-west Denmark, during the 1950s. Over the years, Bramin collaborated with many well respected Danish designers, such as Johannes Andersen, Hans Olsen, Kurt Østervig and Frank Reenskaug, but their most successful relationship was undoubtedly with H.W Klein.
Henry Walter Klein was born in Norway in 1919. As a young adult, he served in the Norwegian Royal Marines, before turning his attention to cabinetmaking. In 1949, he moved to Denmark to study interior design at the Tekniske Skile in Frederikberg, training under the prominent Danish designer and architect Finn Juhl. He then returned to Norway to establish his own furniture and interiors business. Later in the 1950s he became interested in plastic furniture and exploring new ways to manufacture it, and began working closely with Bramin in order to finance his work. In 1960, he moved with his family to Denmark to work full time at Bramin, and remained at the company until recession forced its closure in the early 1980s.
