Abstracta shelving by Poul Cadovius Royal System Denmark 1960





Very nice large modernist shaped so called ‘Abstracta’ shelving unit designed by Poul Cadovius and manufactured by Royal System, Denmark 1960. This timeless system exists of black lacquered metal tubes with metal connectors, clear glass shelves in combination with white laminated shelves which are supported by metal holders at the corners. This unit is in very good and clean condition with some normal wear to the glass but since these fall in the frame its hardly visible. and as you can see it can be used as a very nice display unit, bookcase, storage unit, room divider and so on. The abstracta system was designed for multiple uses but mostly shop wise. Storage units, display units for all sorts of items. It could be made upon request in any size you wanted.


This is for a nice large size but we have a large lot of these Abstracta pieces in stock so you can build another unit, bigger or smaller, shorter or higher. Whatever you want we can practically build it within reason. Send us a request of what you need/like. Also available with metal shelves, wooden shelves or grid glass.
