Luigi Cosenza, Cabina da spiaggia, Milan, Italy, 1936
The project of the cabin was exhibited at the VI Triennale di Milano in 1936. It was designed by engineer Luigi Cosenza and made by the Limoncello company in Naples.
The construction of the cabin was formed by four wooden pillars with a circular section. They were connected by beams, with no use of nails or screws. This enabled the cabin to be easily removable. Above beams there was an orthogonal grid of wooden strips, which were also interlocked. Inside the grid the cabin was developed, constituted by the “rigid” shape dictated by the entrance areas, wardrobe, bench and by the organic form of the dressing room.
The roof offered a comfortable terrace with perpendicular shelter and a sun-care tent, which was accessed via the metal ladder. Thanks to its original form and the refined, soft line of metal wire, two constructive problems were resolved: the accessibility to the roof and the disassembly.
