Space Age design hype is spreading across design lovers. Masters like Joe Colombo, Michel Ducaroy, Lucio Fontana are universally renowed for their space age furniture pieces, lamps, chairs and decoration. But there are other space age artists and designer s that – albeit not famous like the champions – created immensely desirable pieces.
Like this gorgeous space age mobile bar. The story tells that it was designed by Livia Castelli (not to be confused with the more popular Anna Castelli Ferrieri, designer, architect and wife of Giulio Castelli) and produced by Fain – a small and almost obscure company operating in Ascoli Piceno, central Italy in the 70s. In other words, this is a product of ‘second lines’. However, it has nothing less than more popular items like Bacco from Artemide, or Componibili from Kartell.
This nice design table has four compartments for bottles, a spacious storage space, and opening the two hinged plastic parts, this trolley become a large coffee table. It is ingeniously conceived, masterfully made and it has also a hint of quirkiness, that adds charm and distinction. This mobile bar was rightfully quoted in the legendary book ‘Utopie du tout plastique’. A well deserved place among design superstars!
