About

Monumental and important cabinet attributed to Giuseppe Terragni (Italian, 1904-1943) from the Novecento Italiano period. Six glass feet are spaced equally along the front of the cabinet with two glass feet in the rear. Each column is wrapped with thin round wood rods, giving each column the appearance of fasces lictoriae. Between each column are five (5) inwardly bowed, concave doors with a geometric pattern on each door front. The cabinet doors have no visible hardware; door pulls are carved into a curved recess on both sides of each door. Two outer doors open to reveal three (3) finely crafted sliding drawers, with recessed, carved circular knobs. The cabinets classical proportions and historic fasces lictoriae columns, contrasted by its modern geometric order and innovative use of glass, embraces both modernism and the past, and is a superb example of early Italian modernist design. Provenance: home of Giuseppe Terragni. Giuseppe Terragni is widely considered one of the greatest Italian architects of the twentieth century. He was an original founder of the "Gruppo 7" in Italy in 1926, an Italian Rationalist design movement which sought to integrate concept, structure, and symbolism into form that embodied the character of necessity, with no superfluous ornamentation or decoration, and perfect proportions revealing the structural skeleton.
