A ladder-shaped bookcase to be placed against a wall. It is one of the designs that resulted from the research into this typology that began with the models displayed at the RIMA Exhibition in 1946. It was produced by the company of Angelo Ponti in Sondrio. It was also exhibited at the 8th edition of the Triennale, where it was awarded the Bronze Medal. At the same Expo, Magistretti also displayed his mahogany and plywood stackable tables.
