Edel, designed by Francesco Rota, is a series of bookcases and high and low cabinets with a strong textile presence. Low, high cabinets and bookcases can be double face, acting this way as separation element and container at the same time. The bookcase, as the other pieces in the collection, has frame and shelves in veneered wood or mat lacquered; the backside covering is in fabric. The smoothed edge of the frame and of the shelves and the way the shelves are fixed to the back, contribute to the extreme lightness of the piece and at the same time highlight its original textile character.
Various configurations available
