Lungangolo by Achille Castiglioni for Karakter Copenhagen
Updated: Jan 7
Castiglioni is said to ponder a lot on lost space. Empty inches and square meters that could be filled with beautiful design but for some reason just never were. Due to this thinking he did many designs intended specifically for the corners of the home. Lungangolo is one of those. Lungangolo is a multi-use piece of furniture originally produced by Bernini. The frame is made of four slender pillars with square cross-sections in between to support the square shelves placed in various heights. The structure is strengthened by a drawer and a side piece. The position of the drawer and elimination of part of the support meant it had to be manufactured in two versions to work for both left and right handed.
