When it comes to half-decent, mid-century furniture designers, Denmark has more than you can shake a stick at. This latest expandable shelving system from Carl Hansen & Son resurrects an old Børge Mogensen that never saw the light of day first time round. Comprising shelves of varying sizes and a wooden cabinet, it can all be assembled using a frame of cylindrical metal bars. The shelves have rounded edges and discreet handles milled into the cabinets ensure easy and effortless sliding. With grey or black powder-coated frames, shelves and cabinets are available in oiled oak, white-oiled oak and oiled walnut, while painted MDF cabinet door versions come in black, grey, maroon, blue and green – all selected by the man himself in 1953.
