One of the most useful pieces of contemporary modern design is the Ladderax Shelving system by Staples from 1960s. The modular system is completely flexible, with a beautifully simple design - 2 side 'ladders' with cross bars that can hold a mix of shelves and cabinets. These units are increasingly hard to find and achieve big money at auction in UK. We have 2 of these units in stock at the moment
the unit in the photograph is 2 full size widths - one tall one short and a half width. The complete unit is 246cms wide x 164cms tall (and a lower section which is 87cms tall)
Each wide section is 93cms
The narrow section is 63cms.
There is a mix of deep and narrow shelves and a cabinet.
Please contact me for more details or to view.
