This is what everyone copied. Looking for modern, modular shelving that can be designed to fill any space and suit any purpose, with desktops, file drawers, regular drawers or sheet music planes added? Want one perfect solution that will allow you to stop looking? Designed in 1960 by Deiter Rams, the Vitsoe 606 Universal Shelving System has become just that.

Produced continually for the past 44 years with small improvements along the way it has become a classic of the best kind, one that works beautifully and is stylish at the same time. And it's clean, minimal lines look as good today as they did in 1960. You can use Vitsoe to fill a wall with books, or create an office with storage against the same wall. It can be free standing or run a single, repeating shelf up four flights of stairs for the longest bookcase in the world. Problems? Vitsoe, recently made Moss in Soho the exclusive distributor in North America. This means that even with Moss's purported 15% price drop, this is a spendy product. The Good? Shipping is 2 to 8 weeks (best if you order by the 1st or 15th of the month), and if Moss's uber cool design attitude doesn't put you off, you will have a beautiful system perfectly installed and never have to worry about doing it again.
