“Cavalletti” by Mangiarotti: versatile 1960s’ design

Cavalletti di Angelo Mangiarotti per Agape

“Cavalletti” is the name of the modular furniture system designed and produced in the 1960s by Milanese architect and designer Angelo Mangiarotti (1921-2012) for Agape.

It was – and still is! – a versatile and functional system, featuring the timeless, signature upside-down V shape of overlapping sawhorses, assembled with simple gravity joints, in which shelves and drawer units can easily be dovetailed.
