Double 'Congresso' Bookcase by Lips Vago, 1960s

About

Shelving unit, steel, by Lips Vago, Italy, 1960s. This double ‘Congresso’ shelf is a modest and strong bookcase made out of steel sheets. The model is freestanding and books can be placed on either side making this a versatile piece. The metal sheets bend upwards at the end of the shelf making them function as book ends. The library is was manufactured by Lips Vago: a coming together of the Italian blacksmith company Vago and the Dutch locker company Lips. It was shortly after the fusion of these two companies that they designed models for archives and libraries such as this particular piece. The shelving unit was so popular that in 1968 it won the Smau Industrial Design Award. We have more bookcases by Lips Vago in stock.
