Mauro Lipparini plays with geometry in the contrasting aspects of the Canaletto display cabinet’s design. Combining Bauhaus and contemporary elements, Ligne Roset fuses together a brushed anodised aluminium frame with a slim glass front that partially obscures objects with its ridged panels.
The colours, reflected evanescently by the striped glazed glass panels, fade progressively to the point of disappearance, producing optical abstractions. An impression of segmented, repetitively rhythm geometric figures, emphasised by the lacquered surfaces and wood panels to the rear, appears poetically, like a curtain which discreetly heralds the interior. Indirect lighting comes from the rear of the vertical side panels, with an illuminated strip located on the rear edges of the panels ; it illuminates both sides and creates a beautiful halo of light inside the unit. The colour of the shelves and back panels adds to the lighting ambiance and can also be modulated via the dimmer.
