alessandro busana: cutline furniture by smooth plane

cutline collection

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.
