High Credenza by Pierro Ranzani for Elam in Laminate, Teak and Metal, 1962
High credenza by Pierro Ranzani for Elam in teak and black Laminate.
What stands out are the large black laminate panels that work very well with the warm teak that is in great condition. A very nice high (108 cm) credenza with two sliding doors to cover two larger shelves, with three drawers that run very smooth and a small locker that folds open and has white laminate at the inside and some smaller shelves as well. Some nice details can be found back if you look at the carved legs for example that have a distinctive shape but also the knobs that have been made out of Brazilian hardwood and the metal rings behind the knobs that give them a nice contrastive appearance both in material as in colour. The subtle use of metal is a nice detail in general, also when you look at the panels that have metal at the outsides, serving as a frame function more or less. The sideboard is in a very good condition and is complete with all its shelves etc. The top is almost as new.
Also a lower one available!
Note that the label in the pictures is not attached to this sideboard but to the lower one. This picture serves merely as a proof of authenticity because they form a set and the lower one is 100% similar (but lower), but does have the label.
