Italian designer Alessandro Busana (www.alessandrobusana.it) introduced CUTLINE produced by Smooth Plane, a new furniture collection that will be presented at the exhibition “Discovering” to Superstudio Più during the next Milano Design Week.
Smooth Plane is a young brand, created to give wood a new identity in the home through objects
characterized by a strong aesthetic personality, rich in new functional content, and always
shaped by skilled hands of craftsmen giving real added value to each individual object.
In nature, wood presents itself through a dress – the bark – which contains the true
essence of the material.
This is the simple but essential point from which the designer Alessandro Busana and his
team started for developed the “Cutline” project, a line of furniture that defines a
dynamism of a precise action, a radical cut, an explicit gesture made to reveal what lies
beneath, what lies inside, a cut creating functionality in each object and, at the same
time, giving rise to an aesthetic able to evoke emotion.
The interior thus transpires outside, showing the true essence of the wood; a shift in
perception of the matter that identifies the object as having a dual functional nature, a
visible area and a hidden compartment allowing for differential storage of objects to display
and those to conceal.
