Past Is Present


A new initiative at UniFor sees the furniture

company reintroduc­ing the work of iconic architects from years past

for a project called ArchivioUn­iFor. Starting

with Aldo Rossi, well known for revolution­izing office furniture by

creating pieces that could be used in commercial work spaces as

well as at home, the re-release brings four of his standards to market. The Parigi armchair

(shown above), the curved structure of which is a feat of manufactur­ing, and the Cartesio bookcase, whose shelves mimic a building facade, exemplify Rossi’s

M.O. of using principles and forms from architectu­re. Appropriat­ely, both

were showcased in the newly reopened Molteni Museum just outside
