"Art should be in the foreground!"
The design of the CD shelf by Francesco Apuzzo and Irina Jurasic for Linea 1 from Berlin was inspired by this slogan, which is often heard but rarely implemented. The essence of linea1 shelf lies in its own absence - the discs of your favourite artists hang on the wall as if by themselves. And it works like this:
A 1.5 mm thick steel sheet is folded into a stable shape. The geometry of the folded sheet forms a shadow gap on the wall, thus enabling almost invisible attachment. The shelf elements are simply attached to two height-adjustable brackets that disappear once the 67 CDs are placed on it.
Because of its innovative design, the Linea1 b CD shelf was nominated for the Interior Innovation Award 2008 in Cologne.
