Libreria Pensile - Wire Book Case

Achille Castiglioni & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, 1957


The Wire Book Case is a design that invites dialogue and discussion, introducing a new level of innovative thinking and minimalist construction. Stripping a bookcase down to only the absolute necessities, Italian design siblings Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni designed a shelving unit suspended by strings, adding a sense of lightness and creating the illusion that the shelves are floating in mid-air. The minimalist design and construction of the Wire Book Case allows for optimal creative freedom with the space that surrounds it.
