Bar cabinet, goatskin and wood, 1950s, Italy.

This is a very rare light goatskin bar by the designer Aldo Tura (1909-1963). The corner cabinet is large and can function both as storage and as a bar. The bar has four suspended doors. On top of the doors is an open space that is followed by a large bar top that protrudes on both end. The top of the bar is what makes this piece spectacular. A triangle shape with two suspended shelves. The end of the triangle is cut of and shows a small curve at the right. The shape is very bold and avant-garde, even for Aldo Tura who worked between the idioms of Art Deco and modernism. Tura's trademark is his use of rich materials, sculptural forms and artisanal techniques. In a time where many furniture producers were adjusting their production methods toward mass production, Tura remained committed to exquisite and traditional craftsmanship.
