Designed for idiosyncratic displays of functional and aesthetic objects, FK63 Bookcase System transforms rooms with its bold presence.
Designed in 1963 by Preben Fabricius and Jørgen 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 cabinets fitted with brass handles and 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 metal frame.
Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007) and Preben Juhl Fabricius (1931-1984) were driven by a mutual mission to make form a pure derivative of function. Both were architects and graduated from the Danish School of Interior Design, where they studied under Finn Juhl and subsequently with Arne Jacobsen. Although they partnered for less than a decade, creating only a handful of designs, Kastholm & Fabricius left a legacy of work honoured in museums around the world — from the Museu de Arte in São Paulo to MoMA in New York and the Musée d`Art Moderne in Paris.
