Designed by Bruno Rainaldi for Opinion Ciatti, the Ptolomeo is the original vertical self-standing bookcase.


Available in 3 sizes – 215cm, 160cm and 75cm – and in floor standing and wall mounted versions, this is the perfect storage solution for books in either the home or the workplace.


An optional component is available to make storing larger books easier.

The structure and shelves are available in 5 colour options to complement any interior – all black metal, white lacquered or stainless steel, or a stainless steel base with structure in white or black.



Ptomoleo is available in Australia through Space Furniture.
