Modular Shelving by Mogen Koch
It’s hard to believe that the first prototype of Mogen Koch’s Shelving System was produced in 1930. Eighty years later, the Mogens Koch Shelving System has become iconic to design lovers worldwide—and it still looks as modern as ever. The story goes that when Koch needed a functional and flexible system for his Copenhagen home, it led to this modular shelving system that includes an array of boxes arranged vertically and horizontally. The six-section unit made of solid wood is pretty and practical. Modular elements can be altered to fit the height and width of contents. Available in oak and ash wood with soap, oil, or white oil finishes, the system offers elegance with essential storage solutions. Available at Morlen Sinoway Atelier and Room & Board.
