A wide cabinet designed by the Czech designer Jiří Jiroutek as a part of the famous series U-450 for the national enterprise Interier Praha. He began to work on U-450 series right after the ´58 Expo exhibition in Brussels. The success of the Czech pavilion pushed Czech design toward a soft modernism of pastel colours and new geometries which would later be called ‘Brussels Style’ and the U-450 sideboards would become its leading exemplars. These cabinets were revolutionary in the technical innovations that allowed their mass production and affordable prices in times when there was a great demand for furniture in Czechoslovakia. This U-460 sideboard has a veneered wooden construction, two opening wooden doors have veneered finish, on the side there are iconic plastic drawers with bright pastel-coloured formica fronts and running black handles. The item is available within 3–4 weeks. Have a look at the renovation of this furniture type. http://www.nanovo.cz/en/projects/renovation-chest-of-drawers-interier-praha-20 Packaging
The word Nanovo in Czech means something "anew", "afresh" or "again". We stumbled upon the name of our shop as we were chilling at Berlin's university in 2009. Two years later in 2011 our Nanovo shop opened. We are a shop with Czechoslovak and international post-war design, we sell and renovate furniture and we also design interiors. In 2016 we have received the Czech Grand Design Award "Shop of the Year". In 2019, we were awarded the EDIDA Award - Elle magazine award for Jiří Jiroutek's furniture reissue.
