From the preliminary design to the manufacture of the finished product, architect Piero Lissoni’s initial idea became a reality thanks to Knoll’s expertise and ability to develop innovative solutions.
Based on the observation of a detail of an airplane wing, Lissoni designed Red Baron by Knoll by combining pieces that become progressively lighter, tapering into a thin sheet of metal and made sophisticated by the almost imperceptible thickness and the coating itself. Red Baron is a modular bookcase designed to store and display exceptional collections, focusing on material essence and personalized finishing for a unique touch and look.
The support structure is made with steel posts covered in anodized extruded aluminum, while the shelves have a refined aluminum finish. The pieces allow for compositions of different heights and lengths, using modules one meter wide and 45 centimeters deep.
