HENRY WALTER KLEIN (Norway, 1919-1987) for BRAMIN MOBELFABRIK. Sideboard. Teak wood with two sliding doors and four drawers. Made by Bramin, with label. It shows signs of use and traces of age. Measurements: 80 x 225 x 44.5 cm. It is a piece of furniture with a markedly horizontal structure, with simple and rounded volumes, basically a stylized prism raised on four bambi-like legs, narrower towards the base, which visually lighten the design even more by being located away from the corners. The cabinet is structured with two sliding doors and four drawers. It stands out for its clean lines, sobriety, comfort and design, being within the recognized Mid Century style. The avant-garde trend of this style is well known in the world of interior design as it represents modernism, but, at the same time, it retains a classic touch. Henry Walter Klein trained in interior design at the Tekniske Skole in Frederikberg with the renowned designer Finn Juhl. After a period of training, he worked closely with the furniture manufacturer Bramin in the 1960s. His chairs, tables and sideboards are characteristic of the Danish post-war modern style, which generally involves fine woods such as teak and well-proportioned, well-crafted forms. Bramin-mobler is a Danish publisher also known as AS Jorgensens Mobelfabrik, based in Bramminge in Denmark. From 1955 to 1968, Bramin-mobler edited furniture for Hans Olsen, Arne Vodder, Jorn Utzon, Peter Karpf or Frank Reenskaug, among many other designers. The most famous and prolific designer of the Bramin firm was undoubtedly Henry Walter Klein.

It has an ergonomic shape that easily adapts to the contours of the body, and is in line with the elegant language developed by the Eames couple in the 1950s and 1960s. Charles and Ray Eames, a married couple and artistic couple, worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine arts and cinema, and are responsible for numerous designs that have become classics of the 20th century. Charles Eames studied architecture for two years at the University of Washington, then began his career working in a studio tackling residential housing projects. In 1938 he moved to Cranbrook, Michigan, to continue studying architecture and design at the city's Academy of Art. He would eventually teach there, directing the industrial design department. Together with Eero Saarinen, the son of his teacher Eliel Saarinen, he designed the trophy for the Organic Design Prize, awarded by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 1941, after divorcing his first wife, he married his Cranbrook colleague, Ray Kaiser. Together they settled in Los Angeles, where they will remain for the rest of their lives. In the late 1940s, Ray and Charles together designed their home, known as the “Eames House,” considered today a masterpiece of modern architecture. In the 1950s, the couple continued working in architecture and furniture design, being pioneers in the use of new techniques and materials such as fiberglass or plastic resin for the manufacture of chairs. They are currently represented in the Design Museum in London and the MoMA in New York, among many others.
