About this item

The free standing Ladderax shelving system is a timeless classic designed by Robert Heal in 1964 for Staples in London. Much loved for its minimalist lines, ease of assembly and almost infinite customisability, it remains sought after to this day as beautiful, functional, flexible and desirable furniture. This two bay example would make a perfect work station in any home office, be a fantastic room divider, or simply handy and beautiful storage in any room. The system consists of:

3 x wooden ladder supports
1 x wood fronted sliding door cabinet
1 x bureau unit with drop front and maple interior
1 x three drawer chest of drawers
2 x narrow shelves
2 x deep shelves
14 x support rails
Anti-tip locking nuts for all cabinets
Keys to fit bureau and chest of drawers

All the components are in good vintage condition, showing minor wear, surface marking and colour variation commensurate with their age. There is a feint ring mark and light spot on the top of the chest of drawers (see photos) but these don't detract from the overall look of the piece. There are varying degrees of wear to the shelves, the most noticeable being a scratch and edge denting to one of the narrow shelves (see photos).
