The name of the 60s 606 is 50 shelving unit may seem like some strange mathematical code, but it is actually a very direct description of the meaning behind it. Direct, of course, if you knew what many industrial designers probably know: this 60s cabinet dubbed 606 is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Designed by Dieter Rams when he was only 28 years old, the 60s 606 is 50 shelving unit definitely collaborates a great milestone for both the designer and this retro piece of furniture. The wall-track-based system is still being produced by original furniture manufacturer Vitsoe.

It is amazing to see how timeless the 60s 606 is 50 shelving unit really is. No need for nostalgia here, that's for sure.
