Mogens Koch Bookcase

Mogens Koch, 1928

OVERVIEW

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.

The Mogens Koch bookcase system is a true Danish design classic. It has manufactured for 80 years by iconic Danish manufacturer Rud Rasmussen (now by Carl Hansen and Son), providing one of the most elegant and timeless storage systems in the world. It is a true example of Danish craftsmanship at its very best. The standard bookcase is a square, reversible bookcase with six sections. When turned in position with low sections facing outwards, it is ideal for standard-sized books. When turned in position with tall sections facing outwards, it is ideal for tall books.
