The stylish way of keeping folders tidy and organised comes from Berlin. Francesco Apuzzo and Irina Jurasic have designed an elegant shelf in order to store documents. 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 galvanized sheet steel is folded into a stable shape. Seen from the front, the shelves retreat to the back and the contents emerge. 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 standardized steel sheets mean using the material to full capacity.
