METROPOLIS是1981年出生的意大利米兰设计师Giacomo Moor为Post Design设计的一套新家具系列，共含七种限量版家具单元（桌子、椅子、衣柜、工 作台、书架、水平/垂直墙壁搁架系统），每一种家具均有编号并由设计师签名。将珍贵胡桃木家具框进黑色的铁框结构中，用不同方式营造多样空间：根据具体需求勾勒出的建筑造型让人联想到典型城市建筑的天际轮廓，经过时间的凝结，封存在共同的想象中。
METROPOLIS, the new furniture collection designed by Giacomo Moor for Post Design, is a system composed of seven limited edition pieces (table, desk, wardrobe, console, bookcase, horizontal and vertical wall system) - each numbered and signed by the designer.
Precious walnut wood volumes, framed in black-varnished iron reticular structures, evolve through space in increasingly different ways: they outline architectural shapes that, in addition to responding to specific demands, evoke archetypal metropolis skylines, crystallized over time and locked into the collective imagination.
The geometrical strictness of the design matches, in a sort of delicate balance, with the warm materialness of walnut wood, in a rather intense synthesis that emphasizes the significance of wood and its handcrafted manufacturing.
The furniture collection does not explicitly show its features, but it hangs suspended in an ambiguous dimension, inviting the user to interactively discover small unexpected secret compartments, drawers and trap doors.
The function of the compartments is hidden due to the absence of handles, which are replaced by small black varnished steps to discreetly suggest the opening. This subtle discrepancy in the form-function relationship sets the system free from a strictly referential dimension and gives it an enigmatic, evocative and poetic elegance.
