Design: Componibili Storage Module
Designer: Anna Castelli Ferrieri
Country of Origin: Italy
Materials & Construction: Constructed fully from ABS Plastic.
Fun facts: Designed at the height of the late 1960s craze for all things psychedelic and futuristic, these designs fully embraced the modern material of plastic. Available in a range of colors, the storage units were meant to be utterly simple and practical. The units feature doors that slide open along a single joint and large holes instead of drawer pulls. They remain in production by Kartell to this day and are housed in the permanent collections of some of the world’s most prestigious design museums.
