Achille Castiglioni & Michele De Lucchi
Simple to the point of being austere, Sangirolamo is a furniture system (table-desk-bookcase) designed by A. Castiglioni & M. De Lucchi as a welcoming environment in which to converse or meet in different situations. Distinctive for the extraordinary relationship between their decorative lightness and structural weight, the Sangirolamo table and bookshelves are made from very thick plywood and supported by slender cast iron legs held in place structurally by the table top.
The Sangirolamo bookcase has a blockboard structure with solid spruce core covered with two layers of rotary cut poplar and MDF on each side. The top consists of a combination of various blockboard panels with solid spruce core covered with two layers of rotary cut poplar and MDF on each side. The external finish consists of a Canaletto walnut veneer. The top is reinforced with an external metal crossbar. The back is finished in Canaletto walnut or in matt black lacquered wood. The legs are in powder-painted cast iron.
