A little Scandinavian

There haven't been any postings to this forum for a while, so I thought I'd remedy that with a couple of models I recently completed. The larger cabinet is a wardrobe designed by the Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen in the '20s. (Saarinen, father of the famed architect Eero Saarinen, was for many years the head of the Cranbrook Academy, an influential art and design school in Michigan.) The original uses panels of birch root on the doors; it also has two sculptures tucked into recesses in the front legs.
The smaller piece is a cabinet-on-stand that Carl Malmsten designed in the '60s. Malmsten, an influential Swedish designer, also ran a couple of woodworking schools.
The Malmsten piece screams Scandinavian Modern. I think the Saarinen piece is more interesting, and I wish he were better known these days.
Enjoy.
Best,
