Description / Expertise
Luigi Massoni, Space Age, mobile, capsule, dressing or vanity or bar/drinks cabinet and matching stool/ottoman, special order in luxury, long pile, navy faux fur, 1970s

An iconic design from the 1970s and a really fun, funky, dressing/vanity table or bar/drinks cabinet that will liven up any interior and is also really practical as it is mobile and can be closed when not in. It is in fabulous original condition.

When closed the cabinet forms a circular, faux fur capsule. It opens with chrome handles on the original hinges into two sections. The left half of the capsule is fitted with spotlights in the top corners and has three canted mirrors to give three viewing perspectives above a fitted table with an open storage area below. The right half of the capsule is fitted with spotlights in the top corners with two glass shelves below above a fitted table with a drawer in the frieze and a storage area below. This is a rare, special order model upholstered in a luxury navy faux fur, the standard model is upholstered in short pile synthetic fur, with a metallic gold interior and stool has a lift off top. Standing on large, heavy duty castors.

The mobile stool echos the design, in two parts, with a lift-off seat, and chrome detailing upholstered in the same luxury navy faux fur.
