Rare brutalist sideboard by Batenburg

€ 14500

This brutalist sideboard, designed by Jean Batenburg for MI in Belgium in 1969, is a remarkable and rare find. The sideboard immediately captures attention with its total of six optical art patterned doors that offer a striking visual depth, a characteristic of the optical art movement that was popular during that era. The patterns create a sense of movement and dimension, adding a dynamic element to the otherwise solid and imposing structure. Crafted with high-quality materials and a commitment to craftsmanship, this piece represents the era’s emphasis on durability and design. The sideboard’s aesthetic is defined by a strong, architectural form that aligns with the brutalist movement, known for its raw, unpretentious focus on materials and form.
The sideboard consists of a large piece and a modular, smaller second piece, which allows for a custom setup in your home.
