From the drawing board of Rodolfo Bonetto in 1969, 4/4 represents the typical multi-functional product that can easily adapt to setting and use, in this way allowing continually new interpretations of the spaces in which we live. Curving lines, glossy plastic and easy dovetailing turn the four elements making it up into a round coffee table, a serpentine table, a modular bookcase or even a corner shelving. Made in injection-moulded ABS plastic, 4/4 is a clever solution for the home, study or waiting rooms. For lovers of this kind of genre, it appears with Sean Connery in the 007 film “Diamonds are Forever”.
Born in Milan in 1929, Rodolfo Bonetto abandoned a successful career as a jazz drummer to devote himself to the profession of designer. He started up his own business in 1958 and in the years that followed worked in a large number of industrial fields ranging from the designing of tooling machines to clocks, lamps, ski boots, surgical lasers and motorcars. Being self-taught, he was so keenly oriented towards design praxis as to provide an important contribution to the teaching of industrial design at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm and later on at Isia in Rome. He was awarded eight gold compasses, the last of which was for his own professional career. He died in Milan in 1991.
