About

'Royal System' wall shelves system designed by Poul Cadovius, 1948. Manufactured by CADO in Denmark. It possible to fit multiple shelves together. In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Poul Cadovius (1911-2011) was a Danish designer and manufacturer. Trained as a saddler and upholster, Cadovius became interested in industrial design and established his own furniture manufacturing company under the name of Royal Systems in 1945. Between 1964-1967, Cadovius purchased the well-established furniture manufacturer France & Søn and renamed the company CADO. Cadovius collaborated with the impressive roster of iconic Danish designers through France & Søn and CADO, including Sigvar Bernadotte, Grete Jalk, Arne Vodder, Edvard Kindt-Larsen and Finn Juhl. His minimalistic aesthetic is considered a perfect harmony between form and function, Industrial and organic, affordable and elegant. Although the Royal System shelving unit was his main contribution to Danish modernism, Cadovius registered more than 400 patents throughout his long career.
