Charlotte Perriand 1930s Riflesso container unit

Riflesso

On the face of it, a contemporary storage system, but the Cassina Riflesso container unit was designed way back in 1939.

The work of Charlotte Perriand, the Riflesso has a black painted wood exterior with satin-finished aluminium doors and clear painted aluminium shelves, producing a look that’s still popular today (I have a Merrow Associates sideboard that’s almost identical in construction).

You can use the unit on the floor (via high and low support feet) or you can fix it to a wall using a metal frame. And it retails from £2,931.
