System Ultra Steel Shelving by Poul Cadovius for DK3

System Ultra Steel Shelving


Designed by Poul Cadovius. In 1957, the Danish designer and manufacturer Poul Cadovius launched System Ultra® as a successor to the iconic and successful Royal System® from 1948.
The design is based on the same wall-hung principle as its famous predecessor, but it has its very own visual identity, featuring
 elegant, ultra-thin shelves, with a wave-shaped edge profile. System Ultra® won a medal at the 1957 XI Triennale in Milan - a highly treasured design prize.

System Ultra® has wooden wall-mounted rails, but with the option of ultra thin components in either Powder-coated Steel (in Green or Black) or Wood in Oak or Walnut. 

System Ultra® offers the possibility to customise the shelving, and to extend it over time according to changing needs. Try the online configurator here to plan your own design - or contact us for advice.


Rails: solid wood in oak/oil or walnut/oil
Hangers: Brass, Stainless steel or Black Powdercoated steel
Steel shelves: Black or Green Powdercoated steel
*Note the wood used for the SYSTEM ULTRA® rails contains more natural elements such as more visible wood grain, mirror (oak), sapwood, and putty-filled knots than the wood used for the ROYAL SYSTEM® rails.

Rails: H70/100/200 × D2 × W3 cm
Shelves: H7 × D22/30/45 × W72 cm -  thickness 1mm
Magazine Shelf: H7 × D30 × W72 cm - thickness 1.5mm
Hangers: H18.5/23 × D22/30/45 × W0.6 cm

The shelves may deflect slightly over time. To maintain a straight profile, dk3 recommend a max load of 15 kg per shelf. Fluctuations in temperature and light incidence may influence the integrity of the shelves.
