Columnata, 1994


Producer: Aleph-Driade

(Out of production)

The column, a key component in the history of architecture, was brought to perfection during the classical era; it provides support, thus facilitating structural layout and organisation. The column is the motif underlying Columnata, a form of infinite puzzle with only two main elements: the column as a supporting structure, and the upper and lower shelves. This design allows flexibility of scale, ensuring adaptability to whatever dimensions are required.   

    Perfect for the book-lover of refined taste or those who appreciate compositional harmony. /The column is a frequent feature in the work of OTB, either as a supporting structure or simply in a more symbolical role, from the colonnades of the Pantelleria house to the Casa del laberinto, not to forget the Doric columns which encase the sitting room of his own house.
