RIP - ARNE VODDER - THE BEST IN DANISH DESIGN - 1926 / 2009









Hi all I have just read that one of the Greatest Danish Designers has passed away on the December the 27th. He was Arne Vodder, a true innovator in his use of colour and a master cabinet maker if there ever was one. Rest in Peace your designs will live on forever.

Danish architect and designer Arne Vodder should be counted among the most influential Scandinavian mid-century designers. His beautiful designs were nicely detailed and modest in their expression, almost without exception based on natural materials. Rosewood and teak - according to the fashion at the time - seem to have been the preferred materials. Today, Vodder is perhaps most appreciated for his beautiful rosewood and teak sideboards designed in the 1950-1960's and produced by Sibast
