Inspired by the long, vertical lines of the falling rain, the award-winning Venetian designer Luca Nichetto has developed ‘Drizzle’, an aptly-named shelving system for the Italian crystal specialists Gallotti & Radice. Unveiled earlier this year during Milan’s Salone del Mobile, the linear, grid-like bookshelf is composed of multiple metal elements that support and frame the shelves which are made of either transparent or frosted glass. Available in multiple colourways, ‘Drizzle’ can be arranged in a virtually infinite number of configurations.
More about the design:
‘Just like the light rain whose fall the word “drizzle” signifies, the support system for this bookcase’s shelves is composed of long vertical lines. These vertical elements made of metal – which can be in bronze, copper or brass hues, or be lacquered in black, white or other colours – can be arranged in asymmetrical, irregular ways to support the transparent or frosted glass shelves. Drizzle’s combinations have been carefully selected in order to allow the bookcase to work well in any context.’
