About the Item

Large Post-modern Abracadabra shelf unit, Laquered Aluminum construction with u-shaped glass shelves. designed by Italian architects De Pas, D‘Urbino & Lomazzi (Studio DDL) manufactured by Zerodisegnio, Italy, signed with makers embleme. The shelf unit includes: 4 x pole for room heights 250cm-262,5cm (we do have pole extensions for the poles available for room heights 275cm-287,5 cm or even 325cm-337,5cm ! ) 8 x u-shaped glass shelf board 137cm 4 x u-shaped glass shelf board 87cm 4 x connection beam 137cm 1 x connection beam 87cm Dimensions: W 415cm D 33cm H 250-262,5cm >> height extensions available if necessary ! As it is characteristic for Postmodern Design architects D’ Urbino, Lomazzi and de Pas create furniture as an image with reference to popular culture. Reminding of a stage situation the shelf is transformed to the dimensions of a living or working interior. The modular design allows to expand the shelf with further parts of the Abracadabra series. The large poles expand against the ceiling, the cones from laquered Aluminium are mounted to the ceiling first. The thread allows adjusting to various ceiling heights: The current set up would work for room heights of 250-262,5 cm. ( Extension parts that we have available allow to extend the shelf to adjusting ceiling heights 275 cm-287,5 cm or even 325-337,5 cm ) The various clamps fix the shelf boards construction, carrying the u-shaped glass boards - The front and rear side of the glass boards beautifully bend. The clamps can be expanded inside the tubes using the imbue screws in the clamp. A very unconventional shelf unit which was produced by Italian manufacturer Zerodisegnio, a spinn-off of Quattrocchio in Milan, Italy. Due to it’s very high sales price back in the 1990ies it was realized in very low numbers. (According to the dealers purchase list retailers had a dealer purchaise price of 9700DM (German Marks) in 1990 - to reach customers final prices usually 40%-60% were added to this price ! The design and manufacturing quality of the shelf both are outstanding. It is in good to very good overall vintage condition, with few signs of use: three glass board with minor chips on corners, partially with loss of laquer. shelf will require disassembly for shipping !
