Description

Il Veliero bookshop is an emblematic object of Albinian planning, as it clearly reflects its passionate search for a balance point "between visual instability and effective stability, between virtual movement and stasis", between engineering experimentation and museum set-up . Il Veliero bookshop is a sort of aerial sculpture that places books, true protagonists of function, in a metaphysical suspension. Albini designs each element by refusing prefabricated components, with the exception of Securit glass (already used for mobile radio), metal rods, cables and brass bolts. A subtle play of tension and compression binds the materials, stretched and forced to the maximum, becoming harmonious elements of an instrument designed to build a new idea of ​​floating space at the service of man. Only one prototype of the library was made for Albini's apartment in via De Togni: one night the sailing ship collapsed and shattered like a glass dream. After almost seventy years the Cassina company decides to reproduce this mythical object.
