$2,650per item

About

Vittorio Introini for Saporiti, free-standing cabinets, walnut, glass, metal, Italy, 1960s This design by Vittorio Introini allows you to adjust the arrangement of the four modules to your own liking. They can be places against a wall or be used as free-standing elements. Each module features a different, expressive grain. The front is a vivid play of glass and wooden textures. The four cabinets feature a wonderful combination of materials. Each cabinet is divided into two sections. One is made of walnut, the other is a glass door. Three cabinets feature one wooden door and one glass door. The fourth cabinet is different in the way that is has four drawers instead. Typical trait of Introini are the special handles he uses for his designs. Two rings on a slim metal line are his trademark and also highlight the doors and drawers of this piece. Also, the metal hinges of the doors and metal highlights on the base complement the design.

About the Manufacturer

Saporiti

Established initially as Fratelli Saporiti in 1950, mid-century Italian furniture maker Saporiti Italia has a reputation for avant-garde and enduring designs, and its tables, chairs and cabinets inspire all who have had the pleasure of contemplating them.

Furniture designer Sergio Saporiti founded Fratelli Saporiti with a vision of creating pieces ahead of their time. By staying on top of the cultural shifts taking shape during the postwar era — and finding inspiration in the craftsmanship, durability and sensibility of Scandinavian design — Saporiti was able to tap into what the public wanted. His focus on using high-quality materials ensured that every welcoming chair and table could be used and enjoyed for decades to come.

In 1965, Saporiti collaborated with Italian designer Alberto Rosselli, a pioneer of the industrial design movement. They created such iconic pieces as the Confidential sofa, the Moby Dick chaise lounge and the Jumbo chair. In the 1970s, Saporiti initiated another collaboration with Italian designer Giovanni Offredi. The prolific partnership resulted in universally renowned designs like the Paracarro table and the Sail chair. Together, they also created the curving Wave sofa, which was popular in international markets.

The joint projects were a success, and the brand opened many international showrooms throughout the 1970s. In the 1980s, the company officially rebranded as Saporiti Italia and released a line of customizable furniture, including the Avedon sofa, in collaboration with designer Mauro Lipparini. This era also led to a partnership with Missoni — the celebrated Italian fashion brand expanded into home furnishings in 1983 and created rugs and upholstery fabrics for Saporiti soon afterward.

Since then, Saporiti Italia has pivoted to furniture contracting and design management. To this day, the company remains under the ownership of the Saporiti family, and vintage Saporiti furniture continues to capture the imagination of collectors worldwide.
