Help needed to identify Danish Rosewood Bar Cube

Hi All. I'd like to pick your brains! Seems you guys know your stuff, and I'm at a loss. Picked up this piece of furniture last week and have completely failed to find anything similar. It is stamped underneath in black 'Made in Denmark'. What I did figure out is that it's called a 'bar cube'. The wood is the most beautiful rosewood and the quality of construction is the best I've seen. Two sides have back-hinged doors with fitted shelves (presumably for glasses) and internally there is a bottle rack (lined in vinyl) and a drawer which pulls open either side. The top is envelope type which swivels and opens to double up to coffee table size. The photos do it no justice. Any help identifying the piece would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance, Paul.

Illum Wikkelso?
An auctioneer friend has suggested it might be Illum Wikkelso. He seems to be the only designer who made bar cubes in rosewood. The one I found on google images is a different model and doesn't appear to be as good quality. But it's a bar cube! Any thoughts?

Thanks.
Ah thanks! You might be right. Although I couldn't find the same model by them, the captains bars do seem to use the same type of rosewood and are of comparable quality. I was struggling with Illum Wikkelso because he designed the only 'bar cube' I could find. Problem is, Illum Wikkelso examples don't appear to be the same timbers.
