The Oscar sideboard by Alain van Havre is the perfect multi-tasker: it has 2 sliding doors and three drawers; its open spaces can be used to exhibit personal objects, whereas the sliding doors offer the option of organizing documents out of sight. Notice the exceptional grooves in the doors: each narrow groove was carefully hand carved, making every Oscar piece unique. Made from teak with a black metal frame.
Alain van Havre is Ethnicraft’s in-house designer. The complexity of things has always intrigued him, which led him to study product development at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. To him, all design embodies the same duality: the aim is to create a timeless product, yet with a hint to the specific moment in which it is made.
