Technical Scheme


Adelaide comes from the Germanic Adalheidis, composed of the roots adal ("noble", "nobility") and heid ("lineage", "family", "type", "quality", "way of being"); its meaning can be interpreted as "of noble stock", "of noble manners", or "of noble appearance. What better choice for this elegant bookcase, terra cielo, made of both wood and iron, composed of a square-based column, swiveling, to which 13 shelves of two different sizes are fixed in an asymmetrical manner on the 4 sides, to confirm that , if in a system the disorder (entropy) progressively increases when it reaches a certain critical threshold, it suddenly decreases and the system is reborn in a new order.



Born in Aosta 1962, He got his graduation in Industrial Design at the Politecnico University of Milan-Department of Architecture. He works for some furniture industries among which Alivar, Ciatti a Tavola, Dilmos,EmmeBi, Minottiitalia , Mogg, Movelight, Sturm Und Plastic, and he also projects shops and private houses. His approach to projecting passes through concepts like flexibility, forms dynamism and breaking up at minimal terms, empowered by an aesthetic idea which looks for the poetical form of the object without debasing its recognisability and functional effectiveness. As Elio Franzini, professor of Aesthetics at the State University of Milan, wrote: “Bitetti’s forms, within the projectual (and physical) I-We dialogue, are then symbols; they have an open meaning, the invisible acting through the visible”.So, looking for a different sense of things, going over the traditional idea of their use, Claudio Bitetti gives “a repertoire of projects passing through the home space, making the people who live it to exploit the whole of their senses, to use double-senses, to elaborate common-sense”, as affirmed by Flaviano Celaschi, professor and vice-dean of the Milan Faculty of Industrial Design.
