The “Veliero” bookcase recalls the stays of a sailing boat in its shape and structure. Two ash wood pillars on which shelves in stratifi ed glass are suspended using a system of steel rods.
In 1940, it was a challenge for Franco Albini himself, who made just one model expressly for his own home. In 2011, it was a challenge for Cassina, which has revived this model by solving the structural aspects with a re-issue that keeps the original model’s lightness and transparency intact.
