Poul Cadovius, CADO
Poul Cadovius is a renowned Danish interior architect. He founded CADO Company in the late 1950's.
In 1964 CADO took over France & Son, one of Denmark's greatest furniture manufacturers. Cado is most well known for its wall units or wall systems made in teak, rosewood, and walnut. These systems could be ordered from catalogs and furniture stores in the 1960's - 70's. There were many different types of cabinets, shelves, lights, standards or uprights and styles. Whether you needed a desk, a table, a stereo cabinet, china cabinets or a chest of drawers, you could customize the system to fit your needs. The Cado Company also made lots of other furniture. Chairs, sofas, and tables. Cado built tons of amazing furnishings by many great designers.
Inspired by Charles and Ray Eames, Hvidt and Orla Molgaard-Nielsen designed the first danish chiar, AX, with a seat and back made of double curved laminated wood. The AX chair was produced by Fritz Hansen; the laminate glueing technique they used was borrowed from the tennis racket industry. This discovery allowed furniture to be manufactured quickly and disassembled for shipping without compromising the quality. As a result the market for danish furniture expanded and eventually lead to Denmark's domination over the modern furniture industry.
