A shelving system created by Danish designer Poul Cadovius in the 1960s. In the 1940s Cadovius came up with a new idea for a floating, modular shelving system, for which he won a gold medal at the Finnish Furniture Fair as well as several other awards. Cadovius later bought the furniture company France & Søn and renamed it Cado. At Cado he worked with a number of important Danish designers, including Sigvard Bernadotte, Grete Jalk, and Arne Vodder, who created furniture for him. His Royal System shelving system was a major contribution to Danish modernism, which inspired many future designers with its perfect combination of form and function.
The shelving system is made of walnut, and the shelves can be rearranged in various ways as required. The shelves have not been refurbished, but they are in perfect condition.
