Edmondo Palutari bookcase unit Vittorio Dassi Italy 1950





Very nice and elegant shelving unit or bookcase designed by Edmondo Palutari and manufactured in Italy by Vittorio Dassi in 1950. This beautiful modular system is covered in teak veneer and has a stunning grain running all over it. The overall condition is good and has minor marks of usage troughout the years, which only adds a nice patina to the whole.


There is a lot of detail in the woodwork such as tapered columns and smoothly shaped handles, features that are very typical for Italian designs of the 1950’s in particular, which are very refined and well made by skilled craftsmen. The brass details in combination with the woodwork really make this unit a true eyecatcher. The unit consists of several shelves and cabinets to store books and other items and a drawer unit with 2 drawers. A big advantage is that the shelving unit is free standing and finished all around, so it can also be used as a room divider as well. The shelves and cabinets can be placed on different positions to suit your own needs or wishes.
