Royal System Shelving by Poul Cadovius for Dk3

Royal System Shelving


Designed by Poul Cadovius. The iconic shelving system Royal System® was designed in 1948 by Poul Cadovius, and has been one of the greatest Danish furniture successes in history.
One of the world's first wall-mounted furniture systems, the idea behind the design was quite innovative. and it remains a timeless classic with a space-saving, flexible design offering numerous possibilities.

NEW - To celebrate the 75th anniversary, both the cabinet with push doors and the cabinet with drop front are now available with a beautiful handwoven veneer front, which was a part of the initial ROYAL SYSTEM® collection in the early fifties.
For 2024 dk3 are also relaunching the elegant rippled glass door cabinet.
