Libreria Pensile — Oak
Karakter by Castiglioni

This piece is part of the AAVVGG Archive and not currently part of the collection.

Originally designed in 1957, perfected over the years, and produced by Bernini in 1966. Seeking to pare down the structure of a bookcase to the absolute minimum, Castiglioni decided to hang the shelves on knots in two cords fixed to a single point on the wall.

50 years after it was launched it is still relevant, elegant, and very Castiglioni.
