System Cado shelf by Poul Cadovius for DK3.

System Cado was conceived by Danish designer Poul Cadovius in 1960 after the success of his iconic wall-mounted shelving system, Royal System in 1948.

The System Cado was also based on the innovative notion of moving furniture from the floor to the walls to create more space. The system consists of wall-mounted panels, to which various shelves, drawers and cabinets can be invisibly mounted to create a flexible and unique, space-saving shelving system.

The shelf is veneered in oiled oak, soaped oak, smoked oak, or walnut with an oiled finish.  

Each shelf comes with two shelf supports and is made of MDF veneer.

Please note; pricing is for a single shelf only, available in 24cm, and 30 cm deep shelf version. Please view 'More products in the range' below for other components to complete the system.

If you require any assistance designing your shelving system please contact us.

Due to production techniques, new parts are not compatible with System Cado parts produced before 1985.

Dimensions 24cm deep shelf: 80w x 24d x 1.9cmh 30cm deep shelf: 80w x 30d x 1.9cmh
