About The Line
Since 2015, The Line, a French design brand, crafts with care wall mountings in the spirit of poetic silhouettes. In one stroke, cut out in metal, The Line reveals panoramas of cities, legendary mountain tops, or even mythical music tracks visually represented by their soundwaves. Through a pure and moving design, each one of us can recognise part of their own story, a memorable experience, a dream to achieve.
WHAT IS OUR STORY?
The story begins in Marseille (France), early in the morning, with a photo taken from a sailboat behind Frioul islands. The sun rises, and the backlight reveals a panorama that is both raw and sublime. The whole town is recognizable from L'Estaque to Pointe Rouge. Better than framing it, Antoine, founder of The Line and cabinetmaker from Marseille, decides to convert this relief into a laser-cut metallic line.
WHAT ARE OUR GOALS AND VALUES?
Beauty. Sustainability. Pleasure. Three words for one commitment. Our obsession is to design beautiful, sustainable and pleasing products.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT US?
The Line strongly values the craftsmanship of its products - designed and made in half a dozen workshops across France - as well as the people behind the making, from the SCOP (equivalent to a Cooperative and Participatory organisation) where the metal shapes are cut out, to the assembling of the products done in an ESAT workshop (employing disabled persons with a view to professional reintegration) in the heart of Paris.
