This cabinet system is based on the elasticity of wood. The flexibility of solid oak combined with wing screws allows for easy cabinet construction.

The sticks are inserted into specially designed slots in the boards and then clamped securely to the boards by means of the wing screws.

This makes the cabinet expandable, adaptable, flat-packable, easy to assemble and adjust without using tools!

This system consists of individual poles in four lengths and shelves with wing screws in various colors. So you can put together your own cabinet. Of course, we have a number of sample configurations!

Transparency of the production chain comes naturally to us.

For us, that doesn't just mean giving information about where something has been produced. Our chain starts much earlier: with the designer of the product!

We'll tell you the whole story. Click on the buttons to discover the different steps:


Le Belge System was designed by German/Colombian designer Reinhard Dienes, who has his own (interior) design studio in Bogota, Colombia. In his Design , he likes to strive for the longevity of a product by using modular systems and flexibility. This is also the case with Le Belge System: you can divide this cabinet completely by yourself and always modify it, expand it, make it bigger, make it smaller, etc. Le Belge System is also characteristic of Reinhard's "desire for" Design that is very simple and functional.

Reinhard Dienes

"I'm always looking for those perfect solutions that make sure that when people use my products, things are made a little bit easier. I think this system explains exactly what I'm trying to do. You don't have to change the world with one design; it's about making something simple that can help people every day."

Reinhard Dienes


Le Belge System has been part of the Vij5 collection since 2011. We met Reinhard while exhibiting with him at a fair in Frankfurt at the same time.

We had previously spotted and photographed his design at another expo, as its clever details really appealed to us. During the expo, we regularly drank coffee together while talking about our work and our Design. Thus a friendship was born and Le Belge System became a perfect addition to the Vij5-collection!


Reinhard first applied the principle of the flexibility of solid oak combined with wing screws to a series of side tables, before transforming it into a cabinet system. At that point, our interest was piqued. Together with him, we developed the design of the shelves a little further so that it became a user-friendly system.

We also introduced different colors of wing screws, including a solid brass variant.

In the original design, the legs were slightly angled and the system was available only as tables.


Le Belge System is made from PEFC certified solid oak, by our local wood processor in the Netherlands. It is then treated in our workshop with Osmo hard-wax oil or colored linseed oil.
