The Veliero bookcase, an icon amidst the Italian design hallmarks, was created by Franco Albini as a one-off in 1940 for his home in Milan. Like almost no other project, this piece expresses a fundamental concept of the Milanese designer: lightness. Highly experimental, the tensile structure of the Veliero is a combination of technique and poetry, exploiting the technical characteristics of the materials to the full potential. The concept of “unstable equilibrium” is reached through apparent simplicity and the reduction to a minimum of components.

The bookcase consists of two pillars in ashwood with brass tip ends. 4mm stainless steel tie rods. Anchoring elements of the rods are in burnished iron with the central
rods in polished brass. The shelves are made of tempered and 3+3 mm. stratified glass. Shelf supports in ashwood with polished brass ends. Diagonal reinforcing tie rods for the shelves in polished brass. The base ihes in steel with the covering panels in ashwood.

All the models in the Cassina collection, by merit of their artistic content and particular creative character, are protected by copyright, a legal institution that is universally recognised and safeguarded; legal protection is assured for the whole life-span of the author and for 70 years after his/her death (or the death of the last surviving co-author).
