Morari French Display Shelf Unit in Chrome and Glass

About the Item

Morari, free-standing display unit, chrome and glass, France, 1960s A functional and aesthetically pleasing shelving unit. This is discernible in the playful composition of different sized glass plates, resulting in an interesting rhythmic front. The unit is equipped with two large glass shelves in the middle. On both sides, three differently sized glass shelves are attached to the chrome construction, with the possibility to swivel them, hence a practical feature is added to the overall design. Thanks to its open character, which is created by the transparency of the material and the open space between each glass plate, the unit allows the user to showcase its personal belongings. The glass is engraved with ‘MORARI’.

  • Sculptural form brass day bed by Osvaldo Borsani, Arredamento Borsani,circa 1958
    By Arredamenti Borsani, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Osvaldo Borsani
    Located in bergen op zoom, NL
    Beautiful and important sculpturakl form brass single bed or day bed circa 1958-1963 by Osvaldo Borsani for 'Arredamento Borsani', Varedo , Italy. The small series of Borsani beds designed were produced in several different designs ,each in very limited numbers and all hand made by the Arredamento Borsani in Varedo, italy. This series of beds never went into serial industrial production , a fact confirmed to me by the Arredamento Borsani archives. Beginning in the late 1950s,Osvaldo Borsani went on to collaborate with many great artists such as Lucio Fontana, Fausto Melotti, Agenore Fabbri, Aligi Sassu and Arnaldo Pomodoro, amongst others entrusting each to provide decorative elements to his designs. The brass headboard features a series of heavy cast solid brass interlocking geometric elements each featuring a beautiful organic three dimensional surface finish creating a supremely elegant and timeless repetitive motif . The bed still retains all its original decorative brass nuts ,bolts and finials which feature the same three dimensional decorative finish as the decorative sculptural forms contained in the headboard. We have had a new bespoke mattress and bolster pillow made with a natural latex foam surface as they would have originally had which also has the benefit that latex breathes. The mattress has an opulent decorative buttoned finish . Botht the mattress and pillow have been finished in 100% wool 'PLOEGWOOL' fabric by the high quality Dutch fabric manufacturer DE PLOEG. MATTRESS DIMENSIONS : Width 100cm x length 200cm / 3ft 3.37inch x 6ft 6.74inch BOLSTER PILLOW DIMENSIONS: Width 100cm diameter 24cm / 3ft 3.37inch x 9.45inch The mattress is supported on a 20mm ( 0.75 inch ) thick plywood board ,with breathing holes, which spans across the transverse brass plated steel frame elements. When used as a day bed SEATING...
