Designed back in 1960 by a 28-year-old Dieter Rams, the 606 Universal Shelving System has achieved an important milestone: 50 years of continuous production by Vitsœ. A significant exhibition showing examples of the earliest production of the shelving system, which is being hosted with the support of The Geffrye Museum, includes rare and previously unseen in public examples of the shelving system of impeccable provenance. In turn, they are juxtaposed with the shelving system of today to show differences of detail but also that it is very much the same species, still able to breed with itself.

The collection consists of 6 different units and a broad choice of finishings allowing different kind of configurations or layouts”.

The Sierra cabinets by Claesson Koivisto Rune were uniquely designed with a sculptural allure while carefully maintaining aesthetical balance and harmony. The doors are engineered with intricate precision to create a vibrant 3-D pattern on its surface. It is then covered with reconstituted (green) wood veneer that runs in different directions.

One of the few furniture design icons from Norway, the Scandia Series chairs were designed in 1957 by Hans Brattrud. Popularity peaked in the 1960s and the chairs fell out of production in the 1970s when the original factory burned down. Enter Fjordfiesta, a Norwegian company that has since revived the range. The Company worked closely with Brattrud to bring these appealing chairs back into production, keeping careful attention to the original detailing and design.
