Ptolomeo Wall

ORIGINAL PTOLOMEO
Bruno Rainaldi / 2003 - 2013


Original Ptolomeo is the free-standing bookcase that doesn’t require any further presentation: it is simple, revolutionary, innovative, as sudden as an intuition and as surprising as its success.

Original Ptolomeo is a container that hides its shape to enhance its content, eliminating the “superfluous” to highlight the essential, namely the books. The bookcase is a simple metal column to which thin shelves, also in metal, are attached. The shelves gradually disappear as the column is filled with books. When it is full, Original Ptolomeo becomes totally imperceptible and it appears as if the books are standing up on their own.

PTOLOMEO WALL
Bruno Rainaldi / 2003 - 2013


Ptolomeo Wall is the wall version of the Original Ptolomeo and could be defined as the "column of knowledge”.  A stack of levitating books or a ground-air column (floor-ceiling) for every space in which it is placed. Equal to the Original version, except for the base, Ptolomeo Wall is a metal column from which a series of C-shaped shelves depart, and once filled it disappears to leave the books at the center of the scene. Absolutely essential, it is the ideal solution for those without much place available for furnitures, taking advantages of the vertical spaces in the environment. Ptolomeo Wall is perfect for creating potential infinite columns of books that can challenge the law of gravity. In traditional apartments or high ceiling lofts, there is no place that cannot be achieved by wisely modulating the three sizes in which Ptolomeo Wall is made.

PTOLOMEO LUCE
Bruno Rainaldi / 2014


To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Compasso d’Oro, Ptolomeo lights up with warm white Led lights, which gives a more precious look and emphasises the presence of volumes, of the furniture that has shaped an indelible revolution in the world of design. Ptolomeo Luce combines the most famous features of Original Ptolomeo with a functional LED light applied to the back. A book shelf and at the same time a lamp, this particular piece of Ptolomeo allows to organise books and also to pleasantly enlighten the room with soft light.
