The work of Argentinean architect Alejandro Sitcotti has a modernist foundation. He takes the constructive and rational influences of the Bauhaus and Scandinavian modern, adds Amrican Shaker and 1950s design elements, and merges them with the materials and sensibility of his native culture. His shelving units (2008) are made from warm, unique South American hardwoods; the vertical and horizontal mounts are crafted of solid lapacho, and the shelves are made with cerejerira veneer. The Siticotti Shelving Unit A is 79″ H x 37″ W x 11″ D and the desk Shelf Unit A is 37″W x 20″D. Each shelf is sold for $1,350.00 and each desk shelf is an add on price of $100.00.
