There is something compelling about the combination of wood, brass, leather and steel. Using these materials and a design language of straight lines, symmetry and a sense of lightness, the Linate furniture collection from Alt.o by Commune becomes one that celebrates minimalism, masculinity and modernity. Here are three of our favourite pieces.
Solid American oak is used to make the curved arms and tapered legs of this armchair. On the back rest are tufted button details that give it a modern retro lift, making it sit comfortably in industrial, contemporary and minimalist interior design styles.
Linate Extendable Dining Table
The slim, powder-coated gunmetal steel legs of this table belie the fact that it holds up a top of smoked oak veneer overlain on solid rubber wood. Brass elements on the four corners add a modern trendiness whether it is 1.6m or 2.4m long.
Appearing to lightly float above the ground is this highboard standing at 1.4m tall. Its dark, smoked oak veneer lends it a sophisticated air, further reinforced by doors and drawers fitted with the award-winning nickel-plated steel Hettich Sensys hinges and runners respectively that operate noiselessly.
