Linea Is The Colorful, Quirky & Functional Storage Collection You’ve Been Searching For Your Home

One problem that never seems to leave us, especially if you’re living in a major city – is the lack of space! If you’re an independent millennial who recently moved out of their family home and into their own, then a major issue that you may be dealing with almost every day…is space constraints in your own home. Our modern millennial homes have many virtues, but one thing they lack is space! Space constraint is something most of us end up dealing with every day. Smart storage solutions can be lifesavers in such tricky and compact situations. One such solution is the Linea storage collection!

Designer: Alessandro Mendini x Porro

The Linea collection includes a range of colorful and quirky storage units that were designed by late postmodernist architect and designer Mendini a couple of years ago. Italian furniture brand Porro is now developing them for the first time! Mendini created the designs by defining them with stunning cellulose acetate surfaces that feature inlays in primary colors. The collection is made up of three pieces – two sideboard cupboard units, and a writing desk.

“We identified in the Alessandro Mendini archive some drawings that had a very advanced level of design,” said Mendini’s daughters, Fulvia and Elisa Mendini. “These pieces of furniture are really very faithful to the original design, we are really happy for this collaboration.”

The pieces are currently only available in a limited series, and only 50 pieces of each design are being produced. One of the cupboards features an open-faced module and drawer, while the other one features two hinged doors. The writing desk is quite playful with a drop-leaf with an internal partition. It is elevated by two dark legs. The entire collection is characterized by bold and bright colors, with playful contrasts between light and dark colors. If you’re someone who enjoys quirky and eclectic designs with a bold personality while incorporating excellent functionality then the Linea collection is for you!

“With the chromatic exuberance typical of Alessandro Mendini’s design, Linea perfectly expresses all the ingredients of a Porro object: geometric purity, accurate workmanship, and technological details,” said Porro’s head of marketing and communication, Maria Porro.
