Lukaz System

Mads K. Johansen 2014

The Lukaz bookcase system was Mads Johansen’s last design before his passing at the young age of 35.

All of Mads’ designs are characterised by their attention to detail and outstanding understanding of wood and what it has to offer. A fine example of this, the Lukaz bookcase is stable, strong, beautiful and precise. More than just a bookcase, it is a part of Mads’ legacy and reflects his absolute talent as a designer and maker.
