Three bays of Ladderax modular shelving & storage designed by Robert Heal in 1964 for Staples of Cricklewood, London.
– Excellent original condition
The Ladderax System consists of four wooden upright ladders plus two extra white ladders to give you the option of configuring the units into individual bays. The ladders, sliding door cabinets and desk unit are all in the rare white, factory finish.
These are fixed by resting on steel support rods, hooked on to the rungs of the ladders. They fit into grooves under the shelves and cabinets. This allows easily assembly and flexibility. Ladderax does not require any permanent fixing to a wall because it self-supports.
This sale is for three bays. As aforementioned, we are including six of the white ladders in this sale.
This system consists of:
X1 Narrow three drawer base unit
X2 Narrow sliding door cabinets (with glass shelves)
X1 Wide Desk unit
X4 Short, full depth shelves
X2 Short, half depth shelves
X1 Long, full depth shelf
X3 Long, half depth shelves
X6 White wooden ladders - can be configured as as individual bays if required
X10 Long metal hook supports rods
X18 Short metal hook supports rods
X6 fixing bolts
X2 Internal glass shelves
In excellent restored condition, it has been superbly looked after by its original owner. There are minor polished in marks as to be expected but these are barely noticeable once the system is up and in place.
This is a real piece of mid-century modern design at its very best with clear influence from the 'Danish School' of design.
