Design Preben Fabricius & Jorden Kastholm, 1963
Solid wood, veneer
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The FK63 Bookcase System, designed by Preben Fabricius and Jorgen Kastholm, embodies Carl Hansen & Son's commitment to craftsmanship excellence and timeless design. Devised for maximum flexibility, the different modules can be combined in a multitude of ways to suit every space and need.

Designed in 1963 by Preben Fabricius and Jorgen Kastholm, the piece is the result of a shared interest in functionally minimalist designs that focus on proportion, handcrafted details, and natural materials. The FK63 Bookcase System embodies the designers' uncompromising approach to design, crafted in FSC-certified (FSC-C135991) solid oak, oiled to accentuate the texture and grain of the wood. It features thoughtful joinery details including full-width cabinetsand open shelves with optional sliding trays - both of which are customizable to accommodate growing collections. Available in wall-mounted and standalone versions, the latter of which rests on a slender powder-coated black metal frame.

Bookcases are prepared for wall mounting as standard. This unit can be used placed on a cabinet or wall mounted. Trays are white oiled ash. Available as a standard depth (10.6" d) or deep depth (14.2" d). This unit does not have any horizontal shelves or trays but may be added for a custom configuration. Each matching horizontal shelf spans half the width of the unit so two horizontal shelves will be needed to fit the width of the unit. Also available in a variety of custom configurations (please call the hive showroom to specify).

standard bookcase: 22" w | 10.6" d | 44.1" h
deep bookcase: 22" w | 14.2" d | 44.1" h

Kastholm & Fabricius

Trained cabinet-maker Preben Fabricius met blacksmith Jorgen Kastholm at the School for Interior Design and found a common approach to furniture design - never wanting to compromise on aesthetics. In 1961, the pair set up a design studio in a Gentofte cellar without any firm arrangements with manufacturers, but by ‘65 they had secured a lucrative deal with German furniture manufacturer Alfred Kill. The next year, their international breakthrough came at the Cologne Fair with a whole series of office and home furniture, leading to orders from ten large furniture concerns. Among their most successful works were the Tulip Chair, Grasshopper Chair, and Scimitar Chair, which highlighted their style of minimalist designs, both attractive and comfortable, usually in steel and leather. The pieces of furniture they produced during their seven-year period of cooperation from 1961 to 1968 were so distinctive that many are still produced today as classics.
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.
