Angelo Mangiarotti, 2006 and 2009

Prototype of a bookcase made by application of the joint system developed by architect Angelo Mangiarotti together with UniFor Technical Office. The joints - with two, three or four ways - allow the creation of different modular compositions and types of furniture. The first studies were followed by other designs, between 2006 and 2009, aimed at further evolving the morphology of the joint and the anchoring system of the components.
