Biosca sideboard in stained pine. This sideboard from the hand of the Spanish manufacturer Biosca is an absolute paragon of the brutalism style applied in furniture. Not much is known about this illustrious manufacturer and the available examples are rare and for good reason. They are very robustly crafted and they have more than stood the test of time and are actually only getting more beautiful.
The proportions and techniques that have been used are things that we would like to categorize as sublime. Pure craftsmanship combined with a refined sense of detail and quality is what the makers have shown here. The corpus is connected at all corners by means of a brilliant tooth joint. Besides, this section rests on two sturdy and wide legs that both feature a striking cutout.Four relatively heavy doors are decorated with special geometric woodcuts that collectively form a beautiful pattern and add depth and dynamism. Small shadows alternate and give the object an air of mystery as it flirts with patterns similar to those found on 17th century Spanish doors. Behind the doors, we find a spacious storage area with drawers on either side.
The pine wood has acquired a beautiful patina over the years and also gives a slight reflection in the light. The patina we see diffusely reflected all over the exterior and definitely contributes to the distinctly Spanish character that this sideboard exudes in all facets. The condition of this very special Biosca sideboard is completely consistent to age and use. Minor damages such as scratches and discoloration are part of it.
