Scope and Content

Project series comprises design and promotional material for a bed entitled "Il carro di giove" designed by Poli in 1991. The bed was made for F.lli Ciulli (likely Fratelli Ciulli), based in Florence, Italy, and an accompanying blanket was made for the textile design company Fanair. The bed project was featured in the 1991 publication Catalogo Armonia by publisher Ponte alla Grazie in Florence, as well as the April 1992 issue of Casa Vogue (no. 240). The design features a large alabaster disc suspended from an iron frame. Project material in the series ranges from early sketches to drawings and collages of the bed in various media, with some drawings overlayed with wax and silver paper.

Also included are excerpted pages from the Catalogo Armonia, featuring a conversation with Sergio Cammilli, who commissioned furniture designs from architects and contemporary artists. The Catalogo Armonia pages also feature images of the bed and blanket prototype. This project series includes textile reference studies, though no drawings or designs for the bed's blanket were received from Poli.
