An enduring classic: the Royal System
The DK3 Royal System was designed in 1948 as the world’s first wall-hung furniture system, immediately establishing itself as an exemplary twentieth-century shelving system and a landmark in Danish design – and it remains as popular as ever in the present day.
Celebrated Danish designer Poul Cadovius developed the original concept for the Royal System in 1948 as a means of freeing up valuable floor space from ever-increasing clutter.
As Cadovius observed, ‘Most of us live on the bottom of a cube. If we were to use the walls in the same way we use the floor, we would get more space to live in.’
Cadovius’s pioneering design was an international success, thanks to its pared-back elegance and peerless adaptability.
This modular system of handsome shelves, cupboards and work station units could be configured to suit each unique living environment – and then extended or reconfigured as required to accommodate changes in use.
Now relaunched by Danish manufacturers DK3, the Royal System is made to the same exacting standards that ensured its initial success.
In addition to its classic Scandinavian styling and its flexibility, the Royal System is distinguished by its ease of installation.
