The Bookkeeper is a useful little piece of furniture designed by architect Dan Svarth. As a supplement to the bookcase, it is ideal for storing the books you are currently reading or the week’s newspapers and for organising your vinyl collection. Or as a corner unit with room for knitting or magazines.
This Bookkeeper originally came to be in A. Petersen’s own cabinetmaking workshop on Kløvermarksvej, initially made from simple MDF boards that were cut, milled and glued together to form three surfaces with corners and edges, until the colourful little piece ended up looking quite complex. The many angles and the opening to the rear lend it a light and elegant quality. Two small, angled legs tilt the whole box, ensuring that everything always remains in place.

Dan Svarth started as a joiner in the Bornholms Møbelfabrik in 1962 and he is educated both from Kunsthåndværkerskolens Furniture Department and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’s School of Architecture. At the latter, he worked from 1972 as a teacher and conducted research. It was also in 1972 Dan started as an employee with Poul Kjærholm’s design studio and he worked here up until Kjærholms death in 1980.
Dan Svarth has designed furniture, as well as researched and written about historical furniture. He is also a skilled model builder and he participates in a wide range of exhibitions.
Furniture from A. Petersen is crafted with the intention to renew the Danish design tradition and carry it into the 21st century. Not in a grand or rapid way, for the sake of scale or tempo. But in a measured, serious way, for the sake of our current time as well as posterity, because furniture should last a lifetime, and hopefully even longer. A good piece of furniture only becomes more beautiful through time and use – a life lived leaves its mark in the materials.
