Description This rare unit was designed in 1965 by architects, designers and brothers Pier & Achille Castiglione. They grew a reputation that spanned design disciplines including architecture, exhibition design, furniture, product and lighting design. Their ability to design for function as well as style attracted many of the top Italian companies to collaborate with them including Alessi, Brionvega, Cassina, Flos, Gavina, and Zanotta.

The Rampa unit was made in small numbers by Bernini, a renowned manufacturer of highly crafted precision-engineered furniture. The design was inspired by the display units used by florists commonly found in the famous squares of Italian cities. It is a movable two-faced cabinet. Pushed against a wall or wheeled out, it can be used as a desk and library. On one side it has a flight of steps covered with tempered glass. One step doubles as a compartment. On the other side are shelves, whilst the central compartment is equipped with six drawers and can be opened, allowing it to be used as a desk. It is in very good condition for its age. The stained Jacaranda veneer wood used on the desk surface show some faint signs of use. The glass elements show a few surface scratches in places, the body of the unit has a few minor edge scuffs and three minor indents across two faces. Marked with the Bernini stamp.
