The Ptolomeo Original bookcase (H 215 cm): a tall stack of books to furnish your home! Opinion Ciatti is an Italian brand highly appreciated for its unusual design ideas, and one of its most iconic creations is undoubtedly the Ptolomeo bookcase. This bookcase has been produced by the brand in many different models, and the one in question is one of the most awe-inspiring. The Ptolomeo Original bookcase (H 215 cm) is a real vertical bookcase as it features a structure that allows you to place the books rigorously on top of each other, or rather on the appropriate shelves. When the bookcase is full, the structure becomes completely invisible and it seems as though the books are floating on air; its height (215 cm), of course, makes the effect even more striking. This was the unusual and fascinating idea came from Bruno Rainaldi, the Italian designer who has worked on the Ptolomeo bookcases with the intention of recreating the look of a stack of books, making it tidy yet bold. In spite of its slim design and extraordinary height, this bookcase is perfectly balanced thanks to the sturdiness of its base, which remains firmly stable even when the bookcase is full. And is there really need to point out how many books such a bookcase can accommodate? The Ptolomeo Original bookcase (H 215 cm) is truly a collection piece when it comes to furniture, a modern jewel that became an extraordinary success as soon as it was on the market. The soul of this peculiar bookcase is contemporary – there is no doubting that – yet it is perfectly suitable even for rooms furnished in a vintage or traditional décor. The Ptolomeo Original bookcase (H 215 cm) can also be a great idea if you are looking for an original and prestigious gift, ideal for someone who is decorating their home.

In 2006 Lapo Ciatti entered the company and Opinion Ciatti was launched. Rinaldi became its president, partner and art director.
