Italia Independent showcase
Self-standing fair showcase for 18 sunglasses
May 2014 - Turin, Italy
Client: Italia Independent
Country Lab Project
This showcase has been designed for the display of about 18 sunglasses. The upper part is quite regular in all the dimensions. Four transparent plexiglass panels are placed all around. The showcase is modulated by two transparent and removable shelves. The showcase is self-standing thanks to a central vertical illuminated pole that is disassemblable in three parts. It is made by commercial aluminum profiles painted in matte black (the same colour of the Corner in San Babila and of the I-Thermic heater), while the base is made by iron, in order to ensure stability. The Italia Independent logo is notched in it. The showcase can be self-standing or, once disassembled, easily be placed on a desk. White plexiglass panels are used as diffusers for the light, both in the column and in the upper part.
