“Given that the Italian furnishings brand Alias specialises in furnishings made from aluminium, the thought was to develop a chair created of four aluminium ‘twigs’ and a seat,” said Nendo, the Tokyo-based studio led by designer Oki Sato.

T-shaped elements, connected sections, and a high or low backrest were all shaped with curving edges to total the chairs and give “diverse seating experiences”.
