Mogens Koch’s bookcase were designed back in 1944 and became a symbol of Nordic furniture design that can see all over the world - and in Denmark everywhere from the small ones home to ministerial offices and boardrooms. The simplest performance in the highest quality is also the epitome of the best from functionalism and forms a multitude of different combinations, which is also the secret of the inexhaustible timeliness and relevance. Place them horizontally as a low bookshelf. Put them on top of each other on a rack. Or mount them on the wall. The reolens natural aesthetics open up for a multitude of possibilities. The bookcases come in two different depths - depending on whether they are used for books or, for example, LP records. Mogens Koch was an architect and professor of the Academy of Fine Arts for a number of years, but in the general public he is particularly well-known for his books. They also represent the functionalism that he had learned from his teachers such as Ivar Bentsen and Kaare Klint, combined with the idea that, that the rack must be able to be included in modules in a variety of different compositions. Even before becoming a professor, he came to stand as one of the idea-makers who spoke of what we know today as the golden age of Danish design.
The bookcases can be left free with up to 2 boxes - with and without a pedestal. When using more than 2 boxes on the shelf, the individual bookcase must be mounted in the wall.
For wall mounting, use the pre-drilled holes in the back cover and screw with a rawl plug that fits the wall.
The bookcase is made of lacquered oak / ash. The wood used is FSC-certified from European forests.
Since wood is a natural material, shade differences may occur, even on the individual furniture
