The wall mounted wardrobe PO/0302 is a creation by the designer Carlo Contin and an homage to the Italian artist Leonardo Mosso. Cappellini produces the wardrobe as part of its collection Progetto Oggetto.
The chaos-like wardrobe offers the largest liberty when mounted. Carlo Contin has shaped a clear definition of up, down, right and left in his design. PO/0302 can be mounted vertically as well as horizontally at the wall and still offer enough space for jackets, coats, scarves and hats.
Carlo Contin constructed a three-dimensional object out of loosely metal rods for his wardrobe PO/0302. Four rods are fixed at the wall and build the structural base that is crossed by further rods. Every single element of the wall mounted wardrobe offers space to hang clothes hangers and every overcoming rod’s point can be used to hang jackets and coats.
The design out of loose rods that are assembled to a clear structure is an homage to the Italian artist Leonardo Mosso, whose works are known for such constructions. Because of the transparent design, Cappellini has included the wardrobe from Carlo Contin in his Progetto Oggetto collection in 3002 and named it PO/0302.
The unusual name of the wall mounted wardrobe is a sort of serial number that identifies the product as part of the Progetto Oggetto collection. The abbreviation PO stands for Progetto Oggetto and the initial two numbers stand for the design year 2003 in this case.
