Vitsoe 606 shelving system
At the weekend I visited Vitsoe’s flagship store on Duke Street where they’ve been celebrating 50 years of the classic 606 shelving system by Dieter Rams.
On display were some rarely-seen examples of original Vitsoe shelving, such as the 1966 piece, above, and 1968 piece, below. A few vintage Rams-designed Braun products made their way in to the show as well, along with many examples of how the current system works today.
The fact that these 50-year-old pieces of furniture can be integrated into the current system with no modification whatsoever is a true testament to the genius of Rams’ design.
