After the launch of the iconic shelving concept Royal System® in 1948, Poul Cadovius introduced the System Ultra® in 1957.
Developed with the same space-saving, flexible design as Royal System®, it is based on the innovative idea of moving furniture off the floor onto the walls, creating more space in the room. System Ultra® consists of wall-mounted rails, shelves and hangers in powder coated steel. The system is characterised by its elegant, ultra-thin shelves, with a wave-shaped edge profile, attached to the rails by hangers in either raw brass or coloured steel. The components are available in various colours and sizes, offering the possibility to customise the system in multiple individual combinations and extend it over time.
