Studio BBPR for Olivetti 'Spazio' Shelving System in Metal

$12,700

About

Studio BBPR for Olivetti, 'Spazio' shelving system, metal, plastic, Italy, 1960 The 'Spazio' series was designed by Studio BBPR for Olivetti in 1960. The design won the Compasso d'Oro Award in 1962. The desk of the 'Spazio' series is featured in MoMA permantent collection. This shelf is consisting out of four colums in different width with cabinets, drawers and shelves. The system is freely adjustable and provides great flexibility. The beige lacquered metal is combined with black metal details and a black construction on top and bottom. BBPR was an architectural partnership founded by Gianluigi Banfi (1910-1945), Lodovico Barbiano di Belgiojoso (1909-2004), Enrico Peressutti (1908-1976) and Ernesto Nathan Rogers (1909-1969). BBPR was thus an acronym formed from the first letters of their family names. The partnership was founded in opposition to Fascism and they wanted to develop a style that had no references to contemporary politics. During WW II, Gianluigi Banfi died in the camps of the Nazi’s whereas the others were also severely defined by this era. They also strongly reacted against the International style by enriching their buildings with medieval references.
