Cassina

by Franco Albini

Additional materials, colours and sizes may also be available. Please contact a Space sales consultant for further information.

Description

The bookcase consists of two pillars in ashwood with brass tip ends. 4mm (0.15”) stainless steel tie rods. Anchoring elements of the rods are in burnished iron with the central rods in polished brass. The shelves are made of tempered 3+3 mm (0.12”+0.12”) stratified safety glass. Shelf supports in ashwood with polished brass ends. Diagonal reinforcing tie rods for the shelves in polished brass. The base is in steel with the covering panels in ashwood.

Unique piece designed by Franco Albini in 1939 for his own house in Milan, it had a highly experimental, a daring challenge to the laws of balance. The name Veliero (Italian for sailboat) alluded to its nautical aspect, and the bookcase has a lightness of touch typical of Albini designs in both its look and physical presence. The reconstruction of this model from the past restores a key design to its place in the annals of design history.
