A radical cut is the defining element in Alessandro Busana's Cutline furniture collection for new design brand Smooth Plane.

Says Busana, "In nature, wood presents itself through a dress - the bark - which contains the true essence of the material."


Cutline is 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."


Smooth Plane was "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."


Busana and Smooth Plane will be showing the Cutline collection at Superstudio PiĆ¹ during Milan Design Week.
