Private Vitrine


Why We Love It

Understated sophistication, timeless aesthetics, and outstanding craftsmanship are the hallmarks of this statement display cabinet designed by Space Copenhagen. Inspired by antique Japanese furniture in both style and craft, this oak-veneered cabinet is elevated by two vertical legs, providing a lightness to its appearance and an understated elegance to its form. The frame secures a tall glass case, with three glass shelves, and two perfectly-aligned glass doors, completing the overall impression of lightness and transparency. Its very simplicity means the Private Vitrine can be used to store and display many types of possessions, from books to precious ornaments. Designed to fit seamlessly into a range different interior styles, the Private Vitrine fits perfectly with the other elements from the collection in the bedroom, lounge or kitchen – or even a hotel or spa lobby. Available in brown-black or light-stained finishes, its classic design, excellent workmanship and immense versatility and functionality ensure that the Private Vitrine will be cherished more and more over time.

  • Considering the social rituals of dining in their design, Space Copenhagen elected to make the tables slightly narrower than is typical of dining furniture; this allows ample space for all the components of a family meal, but also brings diners closer together, enabling more intimate experiences and facilitating conversation with a greater number of people, keeping dinner a highly convivial affair.
