Angelo Mangiarotti, 1966

4D is the first modular storage system produced by Molteni&C.

Design Angelo Mangiarotti, 1966

Made of walnut or rosewood, the series introduces standard measurements (length and depth 96 x 48 cm), modular compositions, a finish on all four sides and wheels so it can be moved. The lower units (70 cm) can be used as side tables, while the higher ones (140 cm) act as dividers or wall units. The solid wood profile is the signature style of the series. “Happiness comes from correctness” (Angelo Mangiarotti, “Rassegna”, 4D).
