Linie58 was founded in September 2011. The first product, Tick table legs, became an immediate success, bringing the German design price for the designer Jakob Schenk as the Best Newcomer 2012. The ticks are now available in three different sizes, the latest in a dining table height.
The story of Linie58 continues in 2016 with two new products, Tuba and Runde tables. As ever, the design is functional, funny and made to last forever. Runde is a solid steel side table, delicate but stable as an iron weight. Tuba is an exceptionally smart sofa table - combining design and practicality effortlessly.
All the products of Linie58 are made in Germany by specialised and high level local companies, the nearest being in the same little Bavarian village where Linie58 is located.
Jakob Schenk (*1980) was trained as an Interior Decorator before studying Interior Architecture at the University of Applied Sciences in Rosenheim. After graduating as an Interior Architect he went to Finland to join the Masters Program for Furniture Design at the Aalto University in Helsinki, where he graduated in 2010. After working for Designer Samuli Naamanka in Helsinki he went back to Germany and founded the company “Linie58″ which is until now developing, producing and distributing products designed by him. He is also working as freelance designer for other companies, such as Freistil Rolf Benz.
