The MK88360 cabinet by Mogens Koch is crafted to the highest standards from solid oak or walnut. The cabinet offers great storage flexibility with shelving options, storage trays and partitions that can be easily arranged according to individual storage needs. And whilst these elements keep contents ordered and secure, the cabinet doors add calm and clean lines to interiors with beautiful natural materials and perfect proportions. With the MK88360 cabinet and all other units in Mogens Koch’s visionary bookcase system, the possibilities for storage are limitless. Koch always searched for common traits that would help him develop universally applicable, clear solutions. His bookcase system is the perfect example of this. It can be continuously expanded and rearranged to address a multitude of storage needs.
Mogens Koch, who is especially known for his furniture classics such as the bookcase system and the Folding programme, worked with Kaare Klint in 1925-30, and was professor at Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole in Copenhagen in 1950-68. Mogens Koch's furniture design forms part of some of the most elegant and important solutions in terms of meeting the requirements to comfort, function and aesthetics and his furniture has been key to Rud. Rasmussen's production since 1932. Mogens Koch worked within all aspects of architecture - housing plans, houses, monuments, furniture, textiles, silver and writing. Mogens Koch's works include only few objects but they are all essential, original and sometimes courageous or daring. There has always been special interaction between Mogens Koch's own life and the furniture he designed. None of them came into existence as artistic manifestos but arose from a given assignment and were created for a particular purpose. Thus, his bookcase was at first designed for his private home in Hulgårdsvej near Bellahøj in Copenhagen.
