Sale price$2,950.00

Lips Vago, 'Congresso' shelving unit, white lacquered steel, Italy, 1960s.

Constructed from steel sheets, the 'Congresso' shelf is a sturdy yet unassuming bookcase that can be used as a storage solution or a room divider, making it a versatile addition to any space. The metal sheets at the end of the shelf are placed upwards, doubling as bookends.
