The system consists of uprights (single and double) – in three different heights; and shelves, writing surfaces, drawers and cabinets, all of which are adjustable in height in 2.5 cm increments. The uprights can also be stacked on top of each other so that the wall unit can be expanded vertically. The front and back sides can be fitted with drop doors, sliding doors or sliding windows. The drawers and doors were available in a dozen colors, which gave the wall unit a cheerful and modern appearance.” (Dutch text: Stichting Gispen Collectie; English translation: NLD)
