F.T.B. by Vincenzo de Cotiis
F.T.B. perfectly expresses the sculptural mastery of Vincenzo De Cotiis’s design approach. It is the modern reinterpretation of the Vertice bookcase designed by Jacopo Gardella, for Busnelli, during the 80’s. Horizontal and vertical lines follow each other in an apparently disordered pattern, creating a graphic image of great effect and elegance. Great attention is given not only to every single detail, be it constructive or not, but also in the choice of diverse and precious materials, such as Iroko wood and oxidized brass. F.T.B. is a sculptural presence that immediately catches the eye; deconstructed shapes, a fragmented design and a mixture of finishes contribute to the creation of a complex and seductive object. Structure, posts, crossbars and sides are made in part with iroko wood panels veneered and partly in wooden panels covered with two molded brass foil oxidized with acid treatment. The shelves are made of oxidized brass molded coats with acid treatment. The metal supports have the same oxidized finish. Materials as per finishing data sheet.
