An extremely flexible bookcase, with myriad modular options, suited to being against a wall or as a room partition. Franco Albini designed this piece between 1956 and 1957 using a solid wood frame, with several shelves, as well as storage units that can be fitted with standard or drop-down doors. Since 2008, applying industrial manufacturing processes, Cassina has launched a number of frame and component options that help to maximise the potential of this piece, to the infinite, as its name implies. Fully free-standing, Infinito can be used from either side, both as a bookcase or display unit for objects of various kinds. The verticals are floor-to-ceiling and height- adjustable, while the shelves and storage units can also be set at various heights. Infinito is available in natural or black-stain ashwood, or in Canaletto walnut.
