Vertical wall bookcase in steel, glossy white finish.

Ptolomeo Wall is the wall version of the Original Ptolomeo - awarded with the Compasso d’Oro in 2004 - and it could be defined as the "column of knowledge”. A stack of levitating books or a ground-air column (floor-ceiling) for every space in which it is placed.

Equal to the Original version, except for the base, Ptolomeo Wall is a steel column from which a series of C-shaped shelves depart, and once filled it disappears to leave the books at the center of the scene.

Absolutely essential, it is the ideal solution for those without much place available for furnitures, taking advantages of the vertical spaces in the environment.

Ptolomeo Wall is modular, so perfect for creating potential infinite columns of books that can challenge the law of gravity.

Enjoy composing your column of books!

Bruno Rainaldi

Bruno Rainaldi

Bruno Rainaldi was born in Milan in 1952. His training was hands-on, having started at a young age to work in design communication. In his early years in Milan he managed the first High-Tech emporium in Corso di Porta Ticinese, moving on to work first alongside Maddalena De Padova in the historical showroom in Corso Venezia and then with Enrico Baleri as partner in Baleri & Associati, where he was in charge of defining communication strategies for design companies and stores. His beginnings as an autodidact encouraged him in later life to ironically and anti-celebratively define himself as a “street designer” and his style as “chaotically rigorous”.

In the mid-1980s he founded Studio Rari – of which he became the soul and creative director. He also started working as art director with some of the top Italian design companies, leading his name to be associated, amongst others, with Alivar, Casprini, MDF Italia, Mussi Italy, Sintesi, Slamp, Terzani. His encounter, in those same years, with the Ciatti family marked the beginning of an important personal and artistic alliance, that led to the establishment first of CCR and then of Opinion Ciatti.

In the early 2000s, his career took a turn towards the world of design. In 2002, together with Marta Giardini, he founded ENTRATALIBERA, a very special space in the heart of Milan dedicated to design and design culture, sales and encounters. At the same time, his focus shifted to studying and creating objects, furnishing accessories and lamps, where the expertise gained over the years in this sector mingled with design inventions.

Amongst the numerous pieced designed there is the Ptolomeo bookshelf, for which, in 2004, he was awarded the Compasso d’Oro. In 2006, together with the very young Lapo Ciatti, who had just entered the family business, he founded Opinion Ciatti, of which Bruno Rainaldi was President, partner and art director.

He passed away prematurely in February 2011.
