Poul Cadovius Modular Floating Wall System Teak Denmark 1950’s


Beautiful modular floating shelving system, by Poul Cadovius for Royal System.

The large cabinet has some damage on the inside and the backside (see the last 2 photo’s)
A few tiny repairs with hard wax.
Wear consistent with age and use.

Cabinet 80 x 30 x 33.5 cm
Cabinet 80 x 30 x 78.5cm
3 x Shelf 80 x 20 cm
3 Mounting rail 143 cm

Born just outside of Copenhagen in 1911, Cadovius began manufacturing window treatments in the 1940s with his partner, Hother Brønner. He soon turned his focus from venetian blinds to furniture, finding success designing svelte pieces in teak, a richly colored hardwood favored by the Danish mid-century modernists.

In 1945, Cadovius founded the furniture manufacturer Royal System with his designs, including the 1948 Royal System shelving unit, a space-saving solution that underscored Cadovius’s penchant for problem-solving in a multifunctional way. Rather than balance shelves on wooden or metal legs, it held them to the wall with brackets. He followed it with the System Ultra in 1957, the System Cado in 1960 and the System Abstracta, which was installed throughout the exhibition halls of the 1962 Cologne Furniture Fair. All expanded on his idea of wall-mounted shelving that saved space while offering functionality, allowing for limitless combinations of storage, shelves, work surfaces and other units. The Royal System proved to be especially popular and is still produced by Danish furniture brand dk3 today, with early models continuing to be in demand.

Massief Teakhouten Cadovius Stijl Wandsysteem jaren ca 1958

Een schitterend wandmeubel gemaakt door Johannes Meijer Geboren 21-09-1916.
Johannes was in zijn jonge jaren timmerman-meubelmaker , kort na het beëindigen van de 2e wereldoorlog was er een grote schaarste aan meubilair en huisraad.
Hij heeft toen zelf diverse meubelstukken gemaakt. Dit wandmeubel heeft hij eind jaren vijftig van de vorige eeuw gemaakt met uitsluitend hand gereedschap.
De ijzeren haken heeft hij toentertijd bij een smid in Amersfoort laten maken.
De planken en het geraamte van het kastje zijn van massief teakhout (dit is bij het orihinele Royal System van Poul Cadovius altijd fineer), de deurtjes zijn gefineerd, 1 deurtje heeft aan de binnenzijde fineerschade zoals je kunt zien op de foto’s, dit valt niet op als hij dicht is.
Het is werkelijk een kunstwerk als je nagaat dat dit allemaal met de hand is vervaardigd.

Lengte staanders: 153 cm
Kastje 80 cm x 30 cm x 33 cm
1 Plank 24 cm x 80 cm
5 Planken 20 cm x 80 cm
