Umberto Mascagni (Designer)
Early 1950s sideboard bar cabinet created by Umberto Mascagni of Bologna, Italy, imported to the UK by I. Barget and retailed through Harrod's, London, 1952-1955. Mascagni was known for his provocative use of new materials in furniture designs such as "skai" (a type of vinyl) and aluminum. The padded skai exterior which presents as a white vellum parchment is trimmed with polished aluminum which is anodized in two tones of silver and faint gold. The top and bottom edges of the case are trimmed in aluminum channel with black rubber bumper guard. Rectangular case on four tapered legs. Two locking doors, each having inset mirror on the inside. Right is an open compartment fully lined like the exterior; Left is the same with a fixed horizontal shelf. Legs, which are also wrapped in black skai with vertical inset aluminum stripe, can be removed for ease of transport.
