The DK3 – Royal Sytem® Design by Poul Cadovius

Poul Cadovius received a lot of attention, especially for his iconic shelving systems. The world-famous ROYAL SYSTEM® from 1948. It was one of the first innovative wall-hung furniture systems in the world.

Poul Cadovius is one of the most famous and successful personalities in Danish furniture history. “Architect, designer, autodidactic inventor, innovator, the enfant terrible of the furniture industry – the titles are varied”, writes the author Henriette Houth in her book “Kassebogen”.

Poul Cadovius has registered over 400 patents – the last one when he was 90. Both his life and his designs bear witness to a real character who has gone his own way – to the delight of all of us. In 2010 dk3 relaunched the ROYAL SYSTEM® in contemporary materials such as walnut, oak and high-pressure laminate. The ROYAL SYSTEM® can be ordered individually as a classic bookshelf, modern desk or library with different cabinet modules.In 2010 dk3 relaunched ROYAL SYSTEM® in different types of wood and the shelving system remains a timeless classic with a space-saving, flexible design that offers numerous options for personal, modern expression.
