Stylish and functional, this is the classic Staples Ladderax mid century shelving system. The gold metal uprights and easy removable supports, allow the teak shelves to be positioned wherever required. This is a very versatile piece of retro furniture. Ladderax adjustable, modular shelving systems are a true mid century design classic and are very highly sought after today. Ladderax was designed by Robert Heal in 1964 and manufactured by Staples of Cricklewood in London for sale in high end stores like Harrods, Heals, etc. Heal was influenced by the Danish school of design. This mid century Scandinavian design movement was all about reinterpreting simple, linear shapes from earlier design periods and making them ‘simpler’.
This system features three bays of Ladderax with thirteen shelves separated by gold ladders and is ideal for storing and displaying your own little library of books. Remember that the shelves can be moved around and set at different heights to suit your needs and the bays can be configured with the tallest bay to the left, right or centre of the set-up. One other option available is to split this set up into two single bays (1 tall and 1 shorter). These two separate bays can then be placed in different locations within the same room or in different parts of your home.
The Ladderax system combines upright ‘ladders’ that support shelves which sit on steel rods that hook onto the ‘rungs’ of the ladders. One of the great benefits of Ladderax over its Scandinavian counterparts is that it doesn’t need to be attached to the wall. The whole set up breaks down easily when it needs to be moved and is so simple to rebuild. You can also be clever and source extra rods, shelves and/or ladders to allow you add to and alter your configuration.
