The project series consists of design work for an unidentified furniture design competition. Material in this project series was originally housed in a folder marked "Concorso Mobili anno 1968", and Poli mentions in his inventory that the project was in collaboration with Roberto Gherardi. The material in this series consists of drawings of a wide clock cabinet, each identified with the note "Motto autunno" (autumn theme). A similar theme is echoed in the caption of one of the photomontages: "Un mobile per tutte le stagioni" (furniture for all seasons). The photomontages feature this cabinet and other elements, such as a table, with photographic portraits of women and children. In his inventory, Poli notes that the photographs are of presentation panels, which were not received with the fonds. A number of items in this series are signed by Poli.
