Frigerio 1970s Italian White Lacquered Carved Wood Credenza or Dresser
A unique and very elegant cabinet from a Milanese house in San Siro, made in Italy, signed by Giusta Collini for Frigerio di Desio, high quality of execution for the uniqueness of the design and choice of materials, entirely handcrafted in solid walnut, the surround completely lacquered in white, the back finished as well so that this piece can be used as a divider in the middle of a room, the front elegantly hand-carved with a sophisticated raised diagonal geometric pattern of 3-D bands with variable width, highlighted by slanted vertical brass bands as handles, on squared brass legs. Two storage areas on each side and the middle section fitted with drawers make this piece very versatile.
Can be accompanied by its matching pair of side tables/nightstands, 701PE
Biography: Luciano Frigerio, Italian Designer, Artist and Musician, (1928 - 1999) born in Desio where his father Giovanni established a small workshop of high quality cabinet making in 1889. His frequent visits to prestigious studios like Canturine, where he often met masters like Gio' Ponti, Franco Albini, Carlo De Carli and Tapio Wirkkala, lead to the transformation of his small family business with the opening of 10 showrooms in the biggest Italian cities, one of which was in Via Montenapoleaone, Milan where many Haute Couture Fashion Designers had their workshops, such as Giusta Collini Style - owned by Giusta Collini - and Gabriella Crespi.
