Italian Postmodern Architectural Bookcase in Black and Blue

Sale price$15,600.00

Attributed to Michele de Lucchi, bookcase, laminated wood, brass, Italy, circa 1968

This stunning polychrome cabinet is exemplary for early postmodern interior design. Build up in solely horizontal and vertical lines. The black colored rectangular open cases and square, solid junctions are connected to each other by the blue colored panels, forming a grid. The horizontal blue lines form the base of this bookcase, with additional black shelves here and there in between. A playful and extravagant piece that shows strong traits of Italian designer and architect Michele de Lucchi, and therefore attributed to him. He was part of the legendary Memphis Group in the 1980s.
