This Skyscraper style cabinet or sideboard was inspired by Frankl's large bookcase desk of c. 1928. The original bookcase desk was the most complex design of any of his bookcases. Frankl, like all designers, adapted his own designs to produce new variations, we followed the same design process in designing this new cabinet/sideboard. We took the base of the bookcase and created a striking stepped cabinet. The original bookcase desk had a radiused top, we took the liberty to change this to a stepped shape following the profile of the base. The high plinth is striking on this piece, with it's stepped profile and partly in wood partly painted black - it gives great crispness to the piece. It would certainly make a striking impact in a room, whether along the wall or in a corner of the room.
Depending on where in the room this was placed we can add typical Frankl cubby holes at the side or the back. This cabinet can be handed, meaning it can be made to go the other way round. We can change the proportions, wood or finish or macabinet is just about to start production, so we'll post photos here to show progress. We have shown 2 larger versions of this sideboard below, which shows how the design can be adapted, to produce larger pieces. These pieces are really substantial pieces of furniture. We don't discuss prices until we've agreed a spec. with a customer.
The above 2 designs show how the cabinet/sideboard can be used in other ways, such as a striking bookcase or a large sideboard or desk. Both of these designs are shown on other pages in the Frankl section.
