With hardly any visible support, books, compact discs and ring binders present themselves on the wall. The essence of linea1 shelves lies in their own absence.
Their geometry is adapted to the contents they hold. A single laser-cut piece of 1.5 mm galvanised sheet steel is folded into a stable shape. Seen from the front, the shelves retreat to the back and the content emerges. A shadow reveal towards the wall enables invisible mounting and enhances the impression of lightness.
The ratio between the steel thickness and the span of the shelves, as well as their arrangement on standardised steel sheets mean using the material to its full capacity.
The linea1 books and DVDs shelf is suitable for approx. 40 books (up to 15.6 cm of depth) and paperbacks or 46 DVDs. The designers Francesco Apuzzo and Irina Jurasic have been nominated for the Interior Innovation Award Cologne 08 for their design and the shelf has been exposed in the “Design Deutschland: Case Study 08”, curated by the form-council.
