De Coene Credenza in Black Stained Oak - 1970's
A brutalist De Coene credenza in black stained oak with four geometric doors, made in Belgium in the 1970s. Behind the diamond pattern doors, this cabinet reveals plenty of storage space. It’s a storage unit that includes several shelves, ideal to store and display books, magazines, art and other curiosities. The design of this credenza is characterised by its well-thought-through layout and clear rhythm. The symmetry of this well-balanced design and the door's graphical pattern adds a brutalist expression to this sideboard. It’s a minimalist Mid-Century Modern piece, in great original condition, that would fit well in an eclectic Hollywood Regency interior.
De Coene was founded in 1887 in Kortrijk (Belgium) by Jozef de Coene, who was at that time 13 years old. In 1895, his younger brother Adolphe joined the company. In their early years, De Coene was inspired by Henry van de Velde, Art Deco and the Arts & Crafts movement. The company made many custom-made furnishings which has led to expansive growth. After WWI, Jozef De Coene visited the United States where he became acquainted with laminated wood production, and purchased a wood-stripping machine. They were the first company that made triplex in Belgium which has led to the ability to mass produce.
