“Beach huts are a recurring theme in my designs because I have always found a sort of synthesis or reduction of architecture in them. I like the idea of them becoming an interior landscape” (Aldo Rossi). Hence the design for a walk-in wardrobe that reflects their shape. Presented at the 1980 Salone del Mobile, the Cabina dell’Elba never passed the prototype stage and only 4 specimens were ever produced.
