“Cavalletti” by Mangiarotti: versatile 1960s’ design

“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.
