The concept of twig is a seat with an aluminium base of generous proportions and legs that slant at a pleasing and dynamic angle. These aluminium tubes change material and become wood, in an organic connection with the armrests, also made of wood. The collection sees four versions; four chairs, each of which is made up of different elements (solid ash processed with a numerical control procedure, or plastic material) which are then paired with the base made of aluminium. Four unique and contemporary chairs, each with its own identity yet worked seamlessly into the collection.
The most striking in terms of shape is the twig 4, where the design of the backrest is interrupted in a clean and graphic manner, like much of the Japanese designer’s work; the result is a piece of design which is both iconic yet bewildering.
The Twig collection takes its place in the Alias catalogue in a coherent and natural way, creating a pleasant blend between the sensitivity of the Japanese designer Nendo and the technological interpretation Alias makes his designs of.
Twig is available with a polished, anodised or white painted structure; with backrests in natural ash wood and the seat either in ash or covered in Kvadrat® fabrics or in plastic material. The twig comfort also comes with backrest and seat made entirely of a plastic material.
