Modular Teak Free Standing Shelving Unit French 1960's



The free standing flexible modular shelving system was constructed in solid teak. The system is solely made from two sizes of cylindrical wooden uprights and connecting screw elements. The shelves large and small have four or six holes that are attached by these stacking modules which are then connected by screwing these tubular elements together. This is a rare functional and modern shelving system that offers an infinite number of combinations which can adapt to the needs of space for the home or work environment. It can flat pack easily, break down to its smallest element then reinstalled to suit many new spatial requirements. It is this ingenious simplicity of design that makes the modular shelving system an aesthetic for the 20th century. The system is very easy to build with a maximum of 3 connecting rows of various heights making a total length of 250 cm. As build n the pictures the shelve heights vary from 22-32-34-46-56 cm Alternatively the system can be build in two higher rows, making the shelving 170 cm wide. The legs are adjustable at the feet. The system consists of; 5 shelves 170 x 25 x 2 cm 5 shelves 90 x 25 x 2 cm 20 supports of 10 cm 40 supports of 22 cm 8 legs and top ends 3 spacers.
