Description Amazing large Abstracta system cabinet designed by Poul Cadovius in Denmark, circa 1950.

This beautiful modular cabinet draws its beauty from its simplicity. It has a strong black lacquered metal structure with separate joints and glass plates, making it adjustable to personal preferences. Part of the plates is made of blurred glass and a part of clear glass, that can be placed and arranged to your personal liking. It has a classic look and endless versatility that would make a great addition as a cabinet in any interior, or as a display unit for retailers, artists or trade shows.

In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.

Poul Cadovius, as like a lot of Danish furniture designers, was an architect firstly. It was in the 1950s when he was searching for a wall system which would give a maximum of comfort, underline the personal atmosphere of the interior, was easy to assembly, offer a lot of combination possibilities and made the living space larger. He couldn’t find it, so invented the “Royal” shelving system which enabled flexible furnishing using endless combinations from a limited set of standard elements. Coming in beautiful rosewood with or without back panels they are simply stunning and still as relevant today.
In the late 1960s he bought the famous manufacturer France and Sons and produced many more furniture under the label of Cado.
Literature: Made-Good.
