Piet Kramer, cabinet, oak, ebonized wood, Bakelite, metal, The Netherlands, 1920s
Exceptional rare cabinet designed around 1920 by well-known Dutch architect Piet Kramer. The big wardrobe, historically used as a linen cabinet, has beautiful curved sides. The two doors create a lot of storage space and are decorated with keyplates that reach from the middle of the door to the bottom of the wardrobe in a V-shape. This detail is repeated in the hinges that are in black stained oak. These decorative locks and hinges with a wrought iron look are very typical for the designs of Kramer. Overall, the cabinet has a sturdy but elegant feel that is representative for the art deco period.
A similar model by Pieter Kramer is in the collection of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.
Piet Kramer (1881-1961) was born in 1881 in Amsterdam. After studying architectural drawing in Amsterdam, he started working for the architectural office of Eduard Cuypers. During this period, he also became one of the most important architects of the ‘Amsterdamse School’. This Dutch movement, that arose around 1910, was mostly focused on architecture and characterized by the use of expressive materials in a sober form. However, they also designed furniture by which they extended their ideas further in interiors.
