Description This set was purchased from a Minoru Yamasaki house in Bloomfield Hills Michigan. It was part of the original installation from the 1960s. There is a good chance that the pieces were designed by the world-renowned architect of the world trade center twin towers but we have been unsuccessful in finding any original source documentation.

The entire set is comprised of five pieces, three cabinets, and two nightstands.
Two of the cabinets have architectural bronze frames that encompass the front of the units and terminate at the floor 6 inches below the bottom of the cabinets elevating them and serving as the front legs. The rear legs are black cylinders and are recessed which gives the illusion that the cabinets are cantilevered off of the wall. A brilliant effect! One of these two cabinets is a chest of drawers with louvered drawer fronts and no hardware. The other has a single drawer and two doors with solid brass hardware.

The third cabinet also has the louvered drawers but does not have the bronze frame.

The pair of nightstands have the same configuration as the first two chests with the doors and drawers and the cantilever effect from the bronze frames.

All pieces have been recently refinished in a satin lacquer.

This is such a unique set that has a very dramatic appearance and takes cues from affluent Italian designers such as Gio Ponti and Ico Parisi.

Each cabinet measures: 20 D x 30 W x 25.75" H.
Styles / Movements Mid Century, Minimalist, Modern
