MHC.2 is a re-edition of the bookcase prototype designed in 1959 by Yasuhiko Itoh. Made in curved wood, a complex process for that time period, it won an award at the 3rd edition of the Selettiva competition in Cantù del 1959. This piece is both elegant and refined. After issuing a limited edition run of 100 numbered pieces, this item is now available as a standard, non-numbered piece in curved wood covered in walnut.
