Lasting from Denmark in 1948

Royal System®Design by Poul Cadovius, 1948

   Certainly one of the premises of good design is the beauty of functional and early scandinavian designers already realized long time ago.

   The term “Scandinavian design” originates from a design show that traveled the US and Canada under that name from 1954 to 1957. Promoting the “Scandinavian way of living,” it exhibited various works by Nordic designers and established the meaning of the term that continues to today: beautiful, simple, clean designs, inspired by nature and the northern climate, accessible and available to all, with an emphasis on enjoying the domestic environment.

   On this atmosphere and with a clear idea of how to make good design that would be good design for the future as well scandinavian designers started to be very well known worldwide.

   The Royal System was conceived by the Danish designer in 1948. Recognised with Gold Medal at Finland Furniture Fair in 1950 and silver at Milan Triennale, the system set a benchmark for wall storage design. In oak, walnut and laminate the system is produced to exacting standards and offers great flexibility to extend or reconfigure.

   Shelving system can be combined for individual needs, for instance as a modern writers desk, as a library, or as an ordinary bookcase with different modules. The bookcase is available in high pressure laminate (HPL) oak and walnut with 
hangers in brass or stainless steel.
