Arne Vodder was a Danish designer and architect. Best known for his mid-century wooden cabinetry and seating furniture, he frequently crafted from rosewood and teak to create pieces characterized by their low-slung boxy profile, subtly rounded edges, and aesthetic compartmentalization. Among his most sought-after works are his sideboards, prized for their harmonious and elegant designs with occasional bright pops of color. Born on February 16, 1926 in Denmark, Vodder developed his skills learning from his close friend and business partner, Finn Juhl. Vodder opened a design studio in 1951 and began designing low-cost houses with architect Anton Borg, which were highly well-received. His body of work expanded during the up-tick in interest in Danish design in the 1950s, as his furniture began to attract international attention. Before his death on December 27, 2009, Vodder’s legacy included many exhibitions, and he manufactured with prominent companies such as Sibast furniture, Erik Jørgensen, and Kircodan. Notably, his furniture was included in the White House decor of American President Jimmy Carter.
