The Veliero bookcase, an icon amidst the Italian design hallmarks, was created by Franco Albini as a one-off in 1940 for his home in Milan. Like almost no other project, this piece expresses a fundamental concept of the Milanese designer: lightness. Highly experimental, the tensile structure of the Veliero is a combination of technique and poetry, exploiting the technical characteristics of the materials to the full potential. The concept of “unstable equilibrium” is reached through apparent simplicity and the reduction to a
minimum of components.
