Danish Modern 2-Bay Modular Teak Wall Unit by Poul Cadovius for Cado, 1950s.

About the Item

Danish Modern 2-Bay Modular Teak Wall Unit by Poul Cadovius for Cado, 1950s. Mid-Century Modern 2 bay shelving system model Royal. This is an original vintage floating bookcase designed in 1948 by Danish architect Poul Cadovius. Cadovius had the revolutionary idea to design a floating, modular shelving system that would maximize floor space and signify the end of conformity in shelving. The Royal System shelving unit went on to win the gold medal at the Finland Furniture Fair in 1950 and silver medal at the XI Triennale di Milano 1957 and remained a hallmark of Scandinavian modern design throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Versatile and flexible floating bookcase that allows for continuous rearranging to suit individual needs. This original Cado Royal System is suitable for both living room, home office or library. This is an early version with the inset brass eyelets for the shelf brackets. The cabinet has a drop down door, an open shelf and three small drawers. All elements can be moved around as desired without the use of tools. The two short uprights can also be placedon either side of the system, making it a 3 bay unit. This set consists of: 1 Upright in stained beech, length 170 cm. 1 Upright in stained beech, length 148.5 cm. 2 Uprights in stained beech, length 76 cm. 1 Cabinet, 30 x 80 x 33.5 cm. 7 Shelves, 20 x 80 cm.
