Danish architect and designer Arne Vodder should be counted among the most influential Scandinavian mid-century designers. A student of world renown furniture designer Finn Juhl, Mr Vodder started designing furniture for Fritz Hansen, France & Son and Sibast, the latter for which he designed a wide range of furniture which received worldwide recognition and success. His beautiful designs were elegantly detailed but modest in their expression. He used natural materials primarily exotic woods such as rosewood and teak which he often combined with colorful eye catching panels. Today, Vodder is perhaps most appreciated for his beautiful rosewood and teak sideboards designed in the 1950-1960’s and produced by Sibast Furniture. Pieces by Vodder are regularly seen at high-end 20th century design auctions, and rare pieces can command high prices.
