Wooden Storage Unit "Archimede" by Hirozi Fukuoh for Gavina, 1962

$1,558.41

About

Modular furniture "Archimede" designed by Hirozi Fukuoh and produced by Gavina in 1962. These are storage units in veneered paniforte with load-bearing structures in solid wood, maximum vertical and horizontal modularity. The storage unit has been partially restored and remains in good condition: the vertical solid wood elements were designed to be unscrewed, but 1 of the 4 legs was glued for structural reasons after the restoration. Despite the overall renovation the furniture shows some signs of wear mostly located on the top. Ref. V. Vercelloni, l’avventura del design: Gavina, 1987 figg. 75, 76.
