PIROSCAFO

Aldo Rossi and Luca Meda have designed a piece of architecture; a large facade featuring regularly spaced windows and inspired by the Regione Umbria headquarter’s facade in Perugia. A bookcase with glass front and wood or lacquered structure and a metal front matt lacquered. Piroscafo is a versatile home cupboard - a bookcase for the study, a display cabinet for the living room or a sideboard for the kitchen. A range of open bookshelves with glass doors and square metal frame, divided into four by an inner wood or lacquered cross structure and a lacquered matt metal façade. It is possible to illuminate the inside with one or more LED lights on lids, and floors, or for the entire length of the central tops and shelves.

  

Design By Luca Meda

Luca Meda wrote an important chapter in Italian enterprise history. He contributed to the design culture of the Molteni Group with great passion and dedication. He was an example of a perfect symbiosis between creativity, business, art and industry. This is something of a paradox for a designer who loves drawing and uses a pencil more than any other tool to describe and reinvent reality. Since the late 70's Luca Meda was dedicated to the design of ranges. He created furniture which became icons. With Aldo Rossi he created the Piroscafo bookshelf, the Zim chairs and the Ho armchair, the Vivette armchair, the Primafila sofa, the 505 programme and the Pass system.
