Albero Bookcase by Gianfranco Frattini
Albero Bookcase by Gianfranco Frattini

1 Albero Bookcase by Gianfranco Frattini
An adjustable and creative piece, it is like a surprise in your living room. I call it the ‘Tree Library.’ Designed in the late 1950s by Gianfranco Frattini as a 'floor-to-ceiling' central bookcase, Albero was created for use in interior settings rather than for mass production. The Albero bookcase is formally associated with the Neo-Liberty period and in terms of product type, with the floor-to-ceiling bookcase systems that were popular throughout the 1950s and '60s.

2 Bob Coffee table
Elegant and chic, Bob the coffee table is a functional and durable coffee table made from natural materials, while the Bob side table completes every room with elegant simplicity. Designer Jean-Marie Massaud proposes refined combinations of wood, leather, marble and steel for a free and self-confident formal result inspired by a Kennedy-style international way of life.

3 Archibald Armchair
When I saw this armchair for the first time I was struck by the uniqueness and the distinctive character of the chair. The Archibald by Jean-Marie Massaud is the perfect combination of substance and form. The armchairs and poufs boast a comfortable and enveloping design ideal for meditation and relaxation.
The breadth and depth of the seat is balanced by its thin feet for an agile and slender overall effect.

Lella and Massimo Vignelli
It is a glorious statement with its shape and special leather finish. The pure form, the blend of materials, the solidity of a technically-advanced structure, the soul of Poltrona Frau.Lella and Massimo Vignelli design micro-architectures rather than straightforward items of furniture to deftly divide and populate the spaces of the most prestigious workplaces.

5 Barcelona chair
BY Mies van der Rohe
I use this chair in designs where I want to say more with less. It is a statement combining past/future and leather/metal craftmanship. One of the most recognised objects of the last century and an icon of the modern movement, it exudes a simple elegance that epitomises Mies van der Rohe's maxim “less is more.” Each Barcelona piece is a tribute to modern design and exceptional craftsmanship.
