The art of craft

Designed for idiosyncratic displays of functional and aesthetic objects, FK63 Bookcase System transforms rooms with its bold presence.

Designed in 1963 by Preben Fabricius and Jørgen Kastholm, the piece is the result of a shared interest in functionally minimalist designs that focus on proportion, handcrafted details, and natural materials. The FK63 Bookcase System embodies the designers’ uncompromising approach to design, crafted in FSC™-certified (FSC C135991) solid oak, oiled to accentuate the texture and grain of the wood. It features thoughtful joinery details including full-width cabinets fitted with brass handles and open shelves with optional sliding trays – both of which are customizable to accommodate growing collections. Available in wall-mounted and standalone versions, the latter of which rests on a slender powder-coated metal frame.

Fabricius & Kastholm

Designer
Together, they designed furniture in wood, and later also in steel and leather, taking advantage of Jørgen Kastholm’s experience and background as a smith. They drew their inspiration from luminaries of Danish design such as Hans J. Wegner and Arne Jacobsen, but also international names such as Charles and Ray Eames and Mies van der Rohe. During the design process, drawings were passed back and forth across the table between Fabricius and Kastholm until it was no longer possible to say who had drawn what, but the result was a joint effort. The design duo specialised in furniture design and single-family houses, and their designs were characterised by minimalism, sophistication, functionality, quality and their eye for detail.
