The home is space, movement, play. It is the mirror of ourselves, of our frailties, of our desires. The home is light. Light that glows and illuminates. Light that furnishes.
LaLinea is soft, curious, unobtrusive light. LaLinea is furniture, complement, elegance. It is a sign of light and colour, to be outlined at pleasure - breaking up the uniformity of the surfaces.
Designed by the young architect, Andrea Marcante, La Linea is a bookshelf system of modular elements that offers the possibility of making up original horizontal or vertical structures, from wall to wall or from floor to ceiling.
Different coloured lights can be alternated freely: each module is lit internally by a fluorescent bulb in the four preferred colours white, yellow, blue and green. The external structure is in metal painted with aluminium-coloured epoxy powders. The internal separators are in opalescent bi-satined methacrylate.
