This early example of a vintage Librenza room divider is made from afrormosia with ebonised shelves and designed by E Gomme for G Plan in the late 1950s. It features those, very retro, ‘dansette’ style legs and has adjustable feet. This elegant mid-century storage and display unit has two drawers and an upper cabinet with sliding doors and can be placed against a wall or in the centre of a room as a divider.
British furniture manufacturing company G-Plan was launched in 1953, but its roots go back to 1898, when Ebenezer Gomme set up a fine woodworking atelier, E. Gomme Ltd., in High Wycombe. The company was revered for its range of high-quality sideboards, tables, and other cabinet goods.
After the WWII, there was a small but growing market for high-quality, modernist furniture, and G-Plan successfully spoke to this younger, more progressive audience. By the 1960s, the Scandinavian look was sweeping international design.
