Vintage poul cadovius Teak Danish Unit MidCentury On Hair Pin Legs Retro Antique. These mid century teak units sit beautifully on industrial raw steel hairpin legs designed by Poul Cadovius. They were originally wall units, one has three draws lined with black and white botanical print.The other is a record / drinks cabinet with basket weave front and teak handle. Originally trained as a saddler and upholster, Cadovius became interested in industrial design and established his own furniture manufacturing company under the name of Royal Systems in 1945. Shortly after, Cadovius had the revolutionary idea to design a floating, modular shelving system that would maximize floor space and signify the end of conformity in shelving. The Royal System (1948) shelving unit went on to win the gold medal at the Finland Furniture Fair in 1950 and silver medal at the XI Triennale di Milano 1957 and remained a hallmark of midcentury modern design throughout the 1950s and 60s. His minimalistic aesthetic is considered a perfect harmony between form and functionindustrial and organic, affordable and elegant.
Although the Royal System shelving unit was his main contribution to Danish modernism, Cadovius registered more than 400 patents throughout his long career, leaving behind a legacy that inspired many future designers. They are 60, s/70, s era and look great in any space.
