Dieter Rams - Vitsoe 606 Universal Shelving System - Vintage - To Match Braun :
Good original production Universal Shelving System designed by Dieter Rams for Vitsoe in 1960.This set is presumed to date from the 1960s or 1970s.
4 shelves and 2 E-tracks, complete set ready to install with all required fixings.
The shelves are to the original design - off-white laminated wood with aluminium end-plates.These are very simple, elegant and beautiful, as well as quite functional. This is the original design by Dieter Rams, quite different to the modern metal production version. As you can see from the photos, it matches perfectly to the Braun products from that period. This set is currently for use as a single bay of shelving, but as I'm sure you know, these components are part of a modular designed system, so could be used in any number of combinations with different uprights.
Overall these are very good condition. General very minor marks, light signs of wear, slight discolouration to the laminated surfaces, and some small scratches to the aluminium, all in accordance with age and not notable damage.
I looked for a good set of vintage Vitsoe shelving for a long time and eventually bought this set from a specialist dealer who had purchased from the original owner in Germany.The set is exactly as I purchased it, and has never been installed by us. We bought when we were renovating our flat, but in the end the wall where these were to go was given a big painting instead... so these have been safely stored on top of the wardrobe for a few years... and now I suppose should go to a good home where they will actually be put on the wall and used... although I'll most likely (actually certainly) regret selling them!
Set comprises:2 x E-track - 171cm3 x shelf - 22cm x 90cm approx.1 x shelf - 36cm x 90cm approx.Also: The set was supplied to me with some new Vitsoe parts: 8 no. new pins to fix shelves to tracks, 4 no. little plastic things to help support the bigger shelf, and 12 no. screws to screw the tracks to the wall. These are also included.(Braun radio not included!)
