Defying the laws of physics, going beyond what we normally understand by the conditions of equilibrium, this bookcase is nothing short of a manifesto for Cassina’s design and construction capabilities.

After a lengthy period of research and development, ably assisted by state-of-the-art technology, the company’s designers created a production prototype of the original 1940 piece that architect Franco Albini made as a one-off for his Milan home. Respecting the authentic underlying concept of the design, with its compelling experimental feel, as well as its surprisingly spare, linear looks, today’s model preserves the minimal ideal of the original: a feeling of air and light so that the books and objects seem to float free. Thus does Cassina restore to the contemporary world of design one of its most emblematic artefacts, a piece that has acquired the status of a work of art, as magical now as it was when it was first seen.

It is now available in an exclusive limited edition in ashwood stained black with stainless steel metallic caps and elements.

Franco Albini - Design Italy

Designer

Franco Albini

Italian traditional artisanship with new forms of modernism.

Franco Albini was a prominent Neo-Rational Italian architect and designer, known for his minimalist approach and innovative use of materials. Born on October 17, 1905, in Robbiate, Italy, Albini studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano, graduating in 1929. He went on to found his own design studio in 1931, where he designed a wide range of products, from furniture and lighting to buildings and exhibitions.

Albini's iconic works include the Albini Desk, Margherita Chair, Veliero Bookcase and Radiofonografo designed in collaboration with Franca Helg. His contributions to modern Italian design earned him numerous accolades, including the prestigious Compasso d'Oro in 1955 and 1979.

Franco Albini left behind a legacy that continues to inspire designers and architects around the world.
