Jo Colombo 1960s Continental bookcase reissued

Colombo_shelf

We love a design classic here at Retro To Go, so we’re more than pleased to see the reissue of the Jo Colombo Continental bookcase.

Designed by Colombo back in 1965 and based loosely on shop-style shelving, this authorised reissue (and ‘special edition’, which usually means it’s unlikely to be around for long) is produced by Spazio Pontaccio, but is available worldwide from its clients.

Choose from three sizes and a choice of finish (wenge, chestnut, white, black, red or ivory), all with that distinctive 3D-style look over two segments and ample room for books of various sizes. Obviously design classics don’t come cheap and this is no different – London’s Mint is selling these from £1,500.
