Design Mogens Koch, 1928
Solid ash or oak wood
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

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. The system with its square bookcase units offers almost endless flexibility with countless elements. Characteristic of both the design and the craftsmanship are the beautiful dovetail and rabbit joints, which create strength and stability in each module.

This bookcase is square and reversible, with six sections in total. When turned in position with low sections it is ideal for books of smaller formats. Turning the bookcase, it is ideal for books of larger formats. The bookcase can be wall hung or placed on the floor with a plinth.

A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.
