If you like the Stadera desk designed by Franco Albini, you may like to explore Lina Bo Bardi furniture  and architectural contributions at Casati Gallery’s page.  As Franco Albini was designing the Stadera desk, he was also designing the new museography for the Genova and museum in which, among other things, he placed old medieval stone sculptures on top of movable metal pedestals or platforms. This versatile, simple and novel approach, allowed the visitors to view and experience the works from all angles and without the physical and psychological barriers imposed by a vitrine or a glass. One of many Lina Bo Bardi’s contributions to design, was her innovative museography approach at the Sao Paulo’s contemporary art museum, MASP, in which she placed paintings on glass panels; freeing them from their perpetual nexus to the walls.
