Vintage Ladderax storage unit for sale by & in support of British Heart Foundation (ends 12 Jan, 2015 20:01:20 GMT)

Ladderax, like its Dutch cousin Tomado, is the creme de la creme of Mid Century Modern shelving and storage. The Ladderax modular storage system was designed by Robert Heal and manufactured by Staples from the mid 1960s through to the mid 1980s.

This teak example and has wooden slatted rather the more familiar metal uprights. There are quite a few components here so you’ll be able to be rearranged into countless configurations to suit your space, need and taste.

I can just imagine this in someone’s tasteful home office with red 700 Series GPO telephone, stacks of interior and graphic design books, a display of Scandinavian art glass, all lit by a vintage Anglepoise or Maclamp.

If you’re interested in buying, it will need to be collected from the British Heart Foundation shop in Edinburgh, either by you or you can arrange for a courier to collect on your behalf. It’s starting price is an extremely reasonable £79.99 and there are currently no bids – but I don’t think it will remain like that for long!

*British Heart Foundation is the nation’s heart charity. They help save lives with information, patient care and pioneering research. With your support, they’re beating heart disease for good.
