Concept

A furnishing system made entirely of wood, designed and patented over fifty years ago now, but which still startles us for its versatility and functionality. Its distinctive feature is a trestle in the shape of an upturned “V”, which means it is superimposable by means of a simple gravity joint, and whose special perimeter section can accommodate bookshelves on which closed containers can be placed, locking and holding them in position by means of an authentic "dovetail" joint. Very popular when it first came out and widely published in leading international magazines at the time, the “Cavalletto” system, which appeared in lots of designer furnishing in those days, has now been restored to life, evergreen right down to its very core.
