Jazz – Nice!

Lapalma showcased several new products at the recent Salone del Mobile 2022 Milan show. First up is the Jazz bookcase designed by Lapalma’s new art director, Giuseppe Bavuso.

This quirky, statement piece is inspired throughout by the fluid spontaneity of improvised jazz performances. Supporting elements emerge from the base, seemingly of different lengths and at random angles, to interlock with the higher surfaces and replicate an imaginary stave. The structure seems on the edge of reason; from certain angles, you’d be forgiven for thinking the whole thing is about to collapse like a house of cards, but turn your head and study the details, and the structure resolves into an incredibly strong harmony.

Enough with the musical metaphors! Lapalma Jazz Bookcase available now.
