VERY RARE CABINET
BY OTTO SCHULZ
Otto Schulz (1882-1970) was a Swedish furniture designer, interior designer, editor and owner of the renowned furniture and interior decoration firm BOET, which he started in Gothenburg in 1920s and ran for 30 years.
BOET was an inspiration centre as much as a store. Schulz also edited an interior decoration magazine with the same name, aiming to inspire readers in every aspect of interior design. BOET magazine was the most influential periodical on interior design in Sweden at the time, featuring reviews by high-profile designers and architects.
Schulz’s furniture was often a mix of modern and baroque, like this very rare cabinet designed and produced around 1940. The combination of rosewood, brass feet and leather doors gives this piece an extraordinary presence.
