This cabinet mounted on high legs was produced during the 1970s by the Swedish-Finnish manufacture Asko. The front is decorated with hand-painted Op-Art painting, referring to the Scandinavian black and white patterns that often appeared in the design from the North. In the middle of the cabinet there are shelves, the height of which can be adjusted according to your needs. Soaring, turned legs and a shallow depth give the cabinet lightness and elegance. The manufactory’s signature is on the back of the furniture.
The history of the brand dates back to 1918, when the Finnish carpenter Aukusti Asko-Avonius created the group producing Asko furniture. Since the 1950s, Asko products have been made in Sweden, where the values of Scandinavian production are continued, such as functionality, minimalist design, high quality and environmental responsibility. Our website is from 1974.
