Linea 1 is a Berlin-based company run by the architects Irina Jurasic and Francesco Apuzzo. Recently they presented ‘tl.s’, a table lamp which once more demonstrates their eye for minimal design. The light describes the object’s structure and informs about the relation between surface and volume. Three folded pieces of steel form a rectangular shape, open on top and on the sides, where slanted planes let light flow out. ‘tl.s’ is made of 1.25 mm galvanized and powder coated sheet steel.

An older object from 2004 is the book shelf whose essence lies in its own absence. 1.5 mm sheet steel is folded into a stable shape, which is then invisibly hung onto height adjustable supports. A shadow reveal towards the wall enhances the impression of floating. Seen from the front, the shelves retreat in the background, while the contents emerge.
