DK3: ROYAL SYSTEM by Poul Cadovius, 1948

Designed by Poul Cadovius in 1948 and now produced by DK3, the Royal System bookcase can be combined with different modules as a modern writers desk, as a library, or as an ordinary bookcase. The bookcase is available in high pressure laminate oak and walnut.

Poul Cadovius was born on Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, and was originally a saddle maker and painter. In 1945 he took the first steps to his new career when he established a small factory that produced blinds. By the end of the 1940's he developed the Royal System bookcase, which was conceived from the idea of creating more space in the livingrooms by hanging the furniture on the walls. This idea was at the time ingeniuos. In 1951 Randers became the center of Royal System® bookcase production, and at one point Royal System® was the most common furnituresystem in the world with over 500 employees and departments in New York, London, Paris, Barcelona, Vienna. Poul Cadovius aquired more than 400 patents. The last one when he was 90 years old.
