ALBERO

Swivel bookcase

Manufacturer Poltrona Frau

THE ICONS Collection
Conceived in the late 1950s as a floor-to-ceiling free-standing bookcase, "Albero" was designed for use in interior settings rather than for serial production.
The "Albero" is formally associated with the Neoliberty period and, in terms of product type, to the floor-to-ceiling bookcase systems that were popular throughout the 50s and 60s. Designed by Frattini, the structure stands out both for its complex cabinet work and for its sculpted nature, acting as the centrepiece of a room.
Supporting frame in solid Canaletto walnut veneer with special rack and pinion joint and shelves in MDF with Canaletto veneer. Iron caps, on the ceiling and ground, finished with textured, wrinkled-effect black paint. A metal “cup” is attached to the ceiling inside which is inserted a steel anchor bolt with adjustable metal ferrules. On the ground it is held in place by an anti-slip rubber foot. The system has a 360° swivel mechanism. Any number of shelves from 8 to 12 can be fitted thanks to the holes in the uprights.
 Albero has been mentioned in "The Top 10 Moments at Milan Design Week" of The New Tork Times.
