Celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, Berlin based linea1 became a household name amongst the design-savvy. The ultra light and thin sheet steel creations are reduced to the bare minimum, offering a puristic and sleek silhouette while being highly functional. Architects Irina Jurasic and Francesco Apuzzo are partners in private and in work. When they moved in together, a vast number of books and other things needed to be stored nicely. Classic wooden bookshelves were out of the question. The creative couple experimented heavily with different materials, before a suitable solution with sheet steel was found.
