The Royal System®: A Legendary Scandinavian Shelf that Redefines Space


In 1948, the ingenious Danish designer and manufacturer, Poul Cadovius, gave birth to a design monument, the modular Royal System® bookshelf. This iconic creation marked a milestone in Danish furniture history, standing out as one of the country's greatest successes. The modular Royal System® bookshelf pioneered wall-mounted furniture systems worldwide, bringing revolutionary innovation to interior design.

Cadovius addressed the challenge of bulky traditional furniture that occupied floor space. His visionary concept of the modular Royal System® bookshelf involved shifting furniture from the floors to the walls by introducing wall-mounted shelves, thereby freeing up precious space in the room.

The modular Royal System® bookshelf consists of wooden rails, shelves with brass or stainless steel hangers, as well as various modules such as dressers, drawers, and desks. These elements can be customized to create a multitude of individual combinations. In fact, Poul Cadovius claimed that the original modular Royal System® bookshelf offered no less than 16 million combination possibilities, allowing for a perfect adaptation to every space and need.

In 2010, dk3 resurrected the modular Royal System® bookshelf, offering it in a variety of wood types. This shelving system remains a timeless classic, characterized by its flexible and space-saving design, providing multiple options for personal and modern expression. The modular Royal System® bookshelf continues to embody the essence of Danish design, combining elegance, functionality, and an avant-garde approach to space utilization.
