Italian designer Alessandro Busana’s Cutline furniture line revolves around the concept of a radical cut. He describes his collection as “a line of furniture that defines 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.”
