Essential Absence: linea1 a Book & DVD Shelf
With hardly any visible support, books, CDs and DVD present themselves on the wall. The shelves retract while the content comes to the fore. The essence of the shelves of linea1 lies in their own absence.
Thin steel sheet is folded into a stable shape. The geometry of the folded sheet forms a shadow gap to the wall and allows an invisible attachment. The shelf elements are simply hung on two height-adjustable brackets. The linea1 book & DVD sheld is designed for about 40 books (up to 15.6 inches deep) and about 46 DVDs.
The designers of linea1's shelf Francesco Apuzzo and Irina Jurasic were nominated for the Interior Innovation Award Cologne 08 and selected for the exhibition "Design Germany: Case Study 08", curated by the German Design Council.
