Alias challenges new areas of research through technological wood
Alias, historically linked to the search for materials and design approaches that enhance its technical and aesthetic characteristics, will focus the focus of its exhibition at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, on the concept of technological wood.
Alias will therefore present three new projects: Time , the armchair designed by Alfredo Häberli that is based on the transformation of a simple two-dimensional sheet, made with a sandwich of wood and glass composites, into a three-dimensional, comfortable and enveloping shell.
" E la nave va", signed by Atelier Oï and the result of a research path and a constructivist approach. The sofa is structured with a system of exposed slats inspired by the structure of wooden nautical hulls, while the elastic ribs support the cushions and are fixed to two wooden rails suspended on elegant aluminum feet. Trine, the sofa designed by Michele De Lucchi, whose architecture consists of two side stands made of solid wood, a central beam and a system of belts on which we rest the cushions.
As stated by Andrea Sanguineti, brand manager and design director of Alias:“This year Alias explores wood, which is interpreted by three great designers. Wood and composite materials in Häberli's seat allow a flat but elastic shape to deform and give life to a 3d shell; plywood slats create an elastic and ergonomic backbone in the Atelier Oï sofa and solid wood sculpted by the masterly experience of maestro Michele De Lucchi gives life to an archetypal sofa. These projects help us to tell that Alias DNA transcends types and materials, and is linked to the design and experimentation approach that characterizes the company's projects. "
