About

This stunning and elegant pair of Art Deco Machine Age chests were realized in the United States by the celebrated Mid-Century Modern Designer Gilbert Rohde for Herman Miller, circa 1940. They feature rectangular bodies in bookmatched and burled acacia with four drawers each (offering a wealth of storage possibilities) and opposed streamlined pulls in ebonized walnut. With their austere forms, these chests allow for the simple beauty of the materials (the stunning burled woodgrain of the burled acacia). Realized by one of the century's great designers, Gilbert Rohde, these chests represent an excellent example of the influence of the Machine Age on Art Deco in America. With their clean lines- distilling the design ethos of Art Deco to its essence- they would be a winning addition to any style of interior from classic deco to contemporary. Mint restored condition.
