Ptolomeo Bookcase



The quirky Ptolomeo 215 bookcase by Italian designer Bruno Rainaldi gives a wonderful illusion of books piled up on top of one another in a seemingly haphazard way.

Launched to great acclaim at the Milan Furniture Fair in 2002, each section of this unique sculptural piece is carefully engineered to spread the weight of the books evenly while the vertical arrangement means it takes up very little floor space.

Due to the vertical sorting, the book titles can be read without any problems ensuring your favourite literature can be found fast. The minimalist stand is made from robust chromed and lacquered steel, and has a strong heavy base that ensures stability.

Available in various finishes and heights as a free-standing bookcase or wall mountable version this piece offers flexibility to suit your interior needs.

This contemporary bookcase is a great way to store and display your favourite books in a living room, home office or bedroom.
