Concept

When Mogens Koch drew the first lines of his bookcase system in 1928, he created a shape which has been copied again and again all over the world. Perhaps it just can’t be done any better? The system with its square bookcase units offers almost endless flexibility with countless elements. The basic module, the bookcase with six compartments which can be turned around according to the size of the books, is in itself a brilliant construction. The Mogens Koch bookcase has been produced continuously for more than 80 years at Rud. Rasmussen. Characteristic of both the design and the craftsmanship are the beautiful dovetail and rabbet joints, which create strength and stability in each module.
Available in oak and ash in different finishes and sizes.
