high bookcase / contemporary / commercial / aluminum
by Piero Lissoni
From the preliminary design to the manufacture of the finished product, the initial idea of the architect Piero Lissoni has become reality thanks to the expertise of Knoll, with its ability to develop innovative solutions. Based on observation of a detail of an airplane wing, Lissoni has designed Red Baron by Knoll by combining parts that gradually become lighter, tapering into a slender sheet of metal rendered sophisticated by the almost imperceptible thickness and by the finish itself.
Red Baron is a modular bookshelf that focuses on material essence and personalized finishing for a unique touch and look, designed to store and display remarkable collections.
The support structure is made with steel posts clad in anodized extruded aluminium, while the shelves have a refined aluminium finish. The parts allow for compositions of different heights and lengths, using modules one meter in width and 45 centimeters in depth.
