According to the art conception of Wassily Kandinsky – "Geometric line is an invisible object". But I decided to make these lines visible, tangible and functional. The LINES is plywood shelving system and a multifunctional room divider at the same time. It's finished with a walnut veneer. Rigidity, durability, and stability of the LINES shelving are provided solely by its architecture, which is based on the intersection of vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines, as well as the physical properties of the material which it's made from. No fasteners, no bolts or screws are used to fix the parts.
