moreOrba Wall System designed by Janet Schwietzer in 1973 for the Pace Collection, New York. Schwietzer's patented design incorporates sophisticated engineering to achieve the appearance of invisible joinery at each cantilevered shelf. Sublimely fine design and metal skills. Cast tubes of polished aluminum fit together horizontally and vertically so the joints seem seamless. A brilliant set-up for a clean, dramatic and very architectural designed wall system; as much sculpture as it is storage. It has been professionally dis-assembled and packed and is stored very safely, ready for it’s new home.
Condition: This large 2-bay unit is in truly excellent condition. There are no chips or cracks in the very heavy glass shelves, and the aluminum finish is excellent. It consists of 9 shelves and two built-in light banks – the cords run discreetly through the posts and electrical is in excellent original condition.
Dimensions: Measures approximately H.72" x 81" x 12" total, and each bay is approximately 36" wide and 12" deep at the interior.
A note from the seller: Cursory research will show that this is an almost unobtainable piece of important 20th century design and my asking price is thousands below anything comparable. Happy to answer questions; please get in touch to discuss possible shipping or delivery arrangements. less
