Italian teak sideboard, designed by Dassi, 1950s


Item description

Italian Midcentury Teak Wood Sideboard by Dassi, 1950s This sideboard has been crafted with a gorgeous material like as warm teakwood, finished with brass details, and its uniqueness is given by the presence of a drop-leaf door on the right side, that makes it available as a secretaire. Its doors and drawers offer plenty of room for storage, making it a versatile item that could be used in any decor, for home as well as office. It’s a rare piece and it would be a great addition to any modern interior decor. It’s in very good conditions of the period, with slight signs of wear consistent with age and gentle use, ready to use. All items designed and manufactured by Vittorio Dassi are always stylish and charming and to his work must be added this great success at selling of the teak wood items collection, so well conceived and designed by availing itself of the cooperation of Edmondo Palutari, one of the main internal designers to the Dassi Mobili Moderni. This furniture line was given an important contribution to establish DMM (Dassi Mobili Moderni) as one of the most known and innovative Italian brand on the market for interior design furniture, since the 1950s. However, let us remember that Vittorio Dassi has had a privileged relationship with Gio Ponti for many years, and the DMM was deeply trusted by him as main cabinetmaker for important projects. One example out of all has been the interior design furnishing for the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento. Items or part of the same design line are illustrated in: - Irene de Guttry and Maria Paola Maino, “Il mobile italiano degli anni Quaranta e Cinquanta” (Editori Laterza 1992), p.151 And/or: - “La Rivista dell’Arredamento” - March 1959 - “La Rivista dell’Arredamento” - April 1959. #madeinitaly
