Designer Achille Castiglioni + Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

Product Description

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.

"I have always desired to do the opposite. Not because I have an anarchic behavior, but because I think the fundamental basis of design consists in thinking the opposite”.

Renowned Italian designer Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) had a passion for re-designing, re-inventing and re-conceptualizing. Traditional interior design objects would pass through his Milan-based studio and end up perfected. He always aimed at enhancing and glorifying the value of the design. Throughout his career he worked to raise design to an ever-higher level of synthesis - stripping design down to the very core and eliminating everything superfluous. During his career Achille Castiglioni collaborated with many designers, among them Giancarlo Pozzi. Together they made Trio and Comodo in 1991.
