Vintage modernist Danish floating dark wood shelf
A vintage modernist Danish floating dark wood shelf.
Similar to Poul Cadovius' Royal system designed in 1949 the shelf is supported by brass brackets which travel through the shelf and are bolted underneath.
However unlike the Royal system this shelf does not require wall uprights. The shelf can be attached directly to the wall and is held in place by screws which go through the loop at the top of the wire-metal bracket.
The shelf is beech wood which has been stained dark and shellac coated.
Would work brilliantly as a hallway, bathroom or bedside shelf.
The simplicity of the design means you can gain storage space without filling your room full of bulky furniture.
Condition: Good. The wire-metal brackets have acquired a wonderful patina and their mottled dull brass coloured surface works well with the dark wood. The wooden shelf does have wear consummate with age.
The shelf flat packs for easy transport or postage.
