Lineweight by Unleash Studio

Industrial designer Melissa Rivera graduated from RISD and opened a small design studio in Hawaii called Unleash Studio. She believes that art should be functional and beautiful.

This curious piece of art is part of the “Linea Collection: Art becomes furniture.” The three lines are made of plexiglass and represent three painted lines, which function as shelves. They also act as a dry-erase surface to write and draw things. Paint rollers are stored at the bottom, serving as erasers. In between the shelves, are drawers that can hold different things depending on the size, ranging from letter size paper, to markers, to CDs.
