The CUTLINE Collection Balances Between the Hidden and Visible

Each piece in the CUTLINE Collection looks like it has had a chunk sliced clean off. Instead of being handicapped in any way, this detail improves the function of each. For some, it exposes the shelving underneath as well as the objects rested on them. For others, it provides more surface space. In general, the sliced off parts give the collection a dual personality that balances between what is hidden and visible.

Designed by Alessandro Busana, the CUTLINE Collection is predominantly minimalist aside from its quirky dissection. Made out of wood that has been painted a light gray, the radical cuts expose the natural grain. The CUTLINE Collection is comprised of varying sized cabinets and a table.
