This marble bookcase is signed by the well known Italian designer Alessandro Mendini in the 1970-80’s. Great designer, Alessandro Mendini marked the contemporary design as he worked at breaking the codes of Modernisms and Bauhaus legacy. Mendini always created pieces of design as works of art, far away for industrial considerations. He was inspired by great artists like Marcel Proust or Paul Singac to whom he paid tribute with his famous chair named “Proust”.
Tempietto Bookcase is a modular storage in marble. This piece has been designed and produced in the 1970-80’s by Alessandro Mendini for the well known Italian marble company Up Group (formerly Up & Up). Up Group has worked with design icons such as Mario Bellini, Michele de Lucchi, Ettore Sottsass, Achille Castiglioni, and more… Up Group still owns the rights on the pieces they produced at that time and continue to make them living. Designed in the 1960, 1970 and 1980’s, these pieces don’t seem to be outdated at all. On the contrary, their elegance anchors them in a modern and contemporary style more than ever.
