Cassina Infinito 835
By Franco Albini
The Infinito bookcase, designed in 1956/7 by Franco Albini, has expanded to include a new fixed to the wall version with a different and more stable floor support. This model was developed - in constant collaboration with the Maestro’s heirs - taking as its main reference a project designed by Albini himself together with Franca Helg in 1958, now on show at the Albini Foundation headquarters, together with drawings made for its reissue by the company Poggi. Infinito Wall is an even more contemporary and functional bookcase: thanks to the insertion of a low upright it is possible to add a dedicated storage unit with doors to create a compartment above that can hold a TV screen up to 65" with a 165cm shelf above it. The new cupboard can be equipped for the passage of cables, maintaining visual order and lightness; the doors are also available in smoked glass for the bookcase in stained black ash. With the introduction of these new modules, the hinges have also been updated to allow door adjustment and cushioned closure.
