The Aliante bookshelf by Giulio Cappellini and Rodolfo Dordoni comes in an array of wall-hanging configurations and consists of a metal structure paired with wooden shelves.
The support structure is composed of two polished metal combs; the shelves come with a polished chrome matte varnished finish, in white, anthracite and mud; the shelves are available with a matte or glossy finish, in the colours of the collection, or in natural or wengé-stained oak. The visual impact can also be personalised: in fact, the shelves of the Aliante bookshelves can come in multiple colours.
The shelves are attached to the structure with socket-head screws, whereas the bookshelf attaches to the wall with an expansion hook.
The Milanese architect has worked since 1979 with the spirit and the aims of a man in continuous renewal. Over the years, his work has turned to be the designer’s one, proposing a personal reading of contemporary design, both for the brand bringing his name in the world, and as art director of other important design brands. His more important project, the “company”, transformed Cappellini into one of the biggest “trend setters” worldwide. Big interest is always present for his lectures at the Milan Architecture University, at the Domus Academy and worldwide, from Montreal to Valencia.
