Tobias Rehberger + Ponti

Tobias Rehberger has created the PARADISE BOOKSHELF for onestar press.
Edition of 12 copies + 2 AP’s
Based on an old piece of furniture that T. Rehberger found in the abandonned hotel PARADISO in Val Martello - Switzerland - (designed in 1935 by Gio Ponti), the PARADISE BOOKSHELF is painted with the distintive colors used by the artist. Originally designed to carry onestar press’s books, this finely crafted piece of furniture is aged as if it was left in an attic for more that 50 years. The 12 copies (all unique because of the aging process) are accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
