Rampa, a multifunctional station on wheels from 1965, was inspired by the traditional florist’s display stands found on Italian town squares. On one side, the steps serve as a bookshelf with the four steps being covered with tempered glass plates, and a compartment in the lower large step, which is closed with a flap door. At the opposite side of Rampa, there are two visible compartments for storage as well as a larger flap that, when opened, acts as a writing desk, and reveals two more compartments, and six drawers. Thanks to the four castors, two of which has brakes, the object can easily be moved around or fixed.

Achille Castiglioni (1918 - 2002) and Pier Giacomo (1913-1968) were born in Milan where they, together with their brother Livio (1911-1979), initiated their designing career entirely based on the research of “new” forms, techniques and materials. The aim was to attain an "integral" design process. Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni are among the founders of the Industrial Design Association. Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni started working for Zanotta in 1964.
