Outline

The New Lineare- Pure simplicity. The aesthetic of Lineare is intentionally minimal yet highly inviting. In keeping with the concept of minimalism, Lineare has been reduced to only the necessary elements to achieve the thinnest possible appearance. The design range is based on a composition of two simple geometric structures- cylindrical bodies and thin rectangular forms of the handle and spout create beautiful harmonious compositions.

Evaluation

As one would expect of tapware from a manufacturer with an established reputation for minimalism, this design is well thought-out, with a high-quality finish. It features a perpendicular cylinder, along with a flat, slim handle projecting horizontally and a flat spout parallel to it. A beautiful sense of tension arises from the contrast between the curves of the cylinder and the synchronized flatness of the handle and spout, which is doubtless a result of steady improvements essential to the pursuit of minimalism.
