The furniture can serve as shelving, a resting platform, display or even as a seat. It can act as a suspended wall unit, an open bookcase against the wall, or it can be used as a dividing wall to separate the spaces in a room or other environments, thanks to the innovative possibility whereby it can be anchored or suspended from the ceiling.

Thomas Jefferson's Monticello® Revolving Bookstand

Among the many ingenious devices found in Jefferson's Cabinet, this one perhaps most clearly suggests Jefferson's passion for knowledge. One can imagine him turning the stand, completely engrossed, consulting five books at once to find the answer to a burning question. Our bookstand is a line-by-line reproduction of the original, which was made in the joinery at Monticello, probably from Jefferson's own design. It's great for cross-checking information from several sources or just keeping reference books and current reading handy. Made of solid mahogany with a soft, hand-polished finish, the rotating stand holds five books at adjustable angles on rests that fold down to form a 12" cube.

Beyond being a multiple-use object Scalo – like many of us – has two souls. Normally it is a wooden monolith, lacking handles or other external protrusions. Only two side openings allow to catch a glimpse of a colourful inner world. Those who see it from this point of view can use it as a sidetable or a stool. To access its other soul one only has to remove from its side a stainless steel lock. This will allow Scalo to open, to rotate and to become a new form, revealing its hidden identity that gives it its name: a small colourful library step ladder (scala) that doubles as a small bookcase. Like a magic key that opens up new uses, the stainless steel lock, once re-inserted in the back of the object, will set it in the open configuration and allow it to be moved around. Beoc and cerruti baleri chose a traditional manufacturing technology to make it precious, with a noble structure of bent plywood that reveals itself on the edges of the internal panels and steps. Scalo’s introverted nature - it doesn’t reveal any hinges or other mechanical component when it is closed - makes it a simple and yet sophisticated character.
