Karakter Copenhagen Rampa by Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
Rampa is a multifunctional station on wheels from 1965, designed by the Italian design duo Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The brothers were inspired by the traditional florist’s display stands found on Italian town squares. On one side, the steps serve as a bookshelf covered with tempered glass plates, and a compartment in the lower large step, which is closed with a flap door. Showcasing the designers focus on functionality in everyday life the opposite side of Rampa serves two visible compartments for storage as well as a larger flap that, when opened, acts as a writing desk, and reveals two more compartments, and six drawers. Thanks to the four castors, two of which has brakes, the object can easily be moved around or fixed.
