In the 1950s, Pieter De Bruyne (1931-1987) joined the Belgian furniture designers who concentrated on modern social furniture. He was convinced that furniture, in addition to its aesthetic value, must be reasonably priced.
His early work was characterized by rational construction and sober structures.
This sideboard is a nice example of the early work of Pieter De Bruyne. He designed it in 1959 for Al Meubel.
This sideboard is composed of 2 parts and made of olive wood. It is very nice detailed with metal parts. Take a look at our detail pictures! It is still in perfect condition.
Pieter De Bruyne was very strict and accurate, unhappy experiences with furniture manufacturers, who always changed his designs, forced him to return to one-off, handmade pieces in the 1960s.
In the 1970s and 1980s he evolved to his post-modern style.
