The Poul Cadovius modular system: a worldwide success

The modular system by Poul Cadovius (1911-2011), the famous Danish interior designer, is one of the great classics of Scandinavian design. Created in 1948, it was one of the very first wall systems to propose the novel idea of not cluttering the floor. In the 1950s, Poul Cadovius was already working on a storage system that would provide maximum functionality while allowing the atmosphere of each interior to be personalized. He was looking for a modular system that was easy to assemble, offered many combination possibilities and didn't clutter up the living space. Poul Cadovius invented the "Royal" system: modular shelving with the possibility of infinite combinations of a set of standard elements.

The "Royal System" was a huge worldwide success, thanks to its lightness and modularity, making it adaptable to any interior. He went on to design the "Cado" model, which we present here. The principle has been adopted by many manufacturers, but the "Cado" version of Poul Cadovius' "Royal System" is the original model, of unrivalled quality.
