Where it once was impossible to imagine interiors without books, the current digital era is slowly making them disappear. With the new Issa collection of 'open' bookshelves by Antonino Sciortino, they can now elegantly make their comeback in both smaller and large spaces. By combining the different heights, book lovers can create a playful collection or even a tight library wall. The smallest book case can also serve as side-table.

Antonino Sciortino

Antonino was born in Palermo. When he was just eight years old, he began to forge iron in his father’s studio. He particularly worked with ‘soft’ iron, which is relatively pliable and thus easier to work with. For Serax, he has designed an exclusive collection for a broader market. The side tables and iron bowls give off the feel of sculptures, and through their artistic finishing touches (painted with brushes and polished), they preserve the soul that Antonino aimed to give them. They will perfectly suit countless interiors thanks to their pure forms and ‘vintage’ tinted look and finish.

Design Process

Some people simply have art running through their veins. This is also the case with Antonino Sciortino. The former dancer/choreographer not only possesses an unbridled imagination, he has also mastered the art of simplicity and style. The latter is certainly strongly represented in the Terrazzo collection. The flawlessly forged bases of the collection of tables and side tables are a reflection of his traditional craftsmanship. The unique and quirky look of the terrazzo tabletop takes you back to fifteenth-century Venice.
