Product description

Seeking to pare down the structure of a bookcase to the absolute minimum, Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni decided to mount four shelves in two wires and fix them in a single point on the wall. Originally conceived in 1957, the design was perfected over the years until presented to the public in 1966. 50 years on, Libreria Pensile is still relevant, elegant, and very Castiglioni.

Measurements:
W 105 cm (41 3/8 inches)
D 30 cm (11 3/4 inches)
H 150 cm (59 inches)

Max weight:
Once the shelves are filled, the bookcase is freed from the need for further wall attachments and when firmly mounted in a solid wall it can carry 90 kilo – 30 kilo on each of the three shelves.

Variants:
Solid ash, black stained and lacquered
Solid oak, clear lacquered
