A Bookcase / Program of furnishings for professional environments

A Bookcase

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

A closed bookcase. A case piece of large dimensions. A furniture piece characterized by formal simplicity, geometric rigour and a careful study of constructive detailing. A cabinet with shelves and doors in glass and wood, which open like a pantograph by overlapping. A monolith positioned with apparent casualness, which methodically designs a flexible and hospitable work environment. Bookcase made of structural elements in aluminium faced in sycamore wood. Doors equipped with a special pantograph opening system, which allows an overlap. Available in the version in safety glass with upper and lower borders in aluminium, and in the blind version with an inner metal frame and facing in sycamore. Both are supplied in a built-in handle. Support legs in aluminium tubular face in sycamore wood, which allow the ultimate in formal lightness in any composite configuration whatsoever. Single, double and triple element.
