07/11/2018 - Comfort, customisation and colours. These are the key words that characterize the novelties for the office and contract that Alias has presented at Orgatec. While the dimension of the workplace ranges from open spaces to stations conceived as moveable cells, in the contract sector the influence of home design has been observed to an even greater extent.
Andrea Sanguineti, Alias’ Brand Manager, tells the latest news: from the new Landscape collection designed by Simon Pengelly, to the new pieces and finishes of Eleven, Frame and Slim, three of the best selling collections of the Italian Company. Last but not least, the Materialias project: interpreted through the materials, colour plays a key role and becomes a structural element of the project.
British designer Simon Pengelly joins the Alias team with Landscape, a highly flexible and functional furniture system for the office that blends harmoniously into the working environment while ensuring maximum versatility of use.
The collection including tables, workstations and trolleys, all of them characterised by soft lines. It is possible to configure the most diversified workstations by means of sound absorbent panels that are inserted into a special housing in the table, which is also fitted with a cable hole and a cable tray.
The landscape range also includes a functional chest of drawers. The body, made of painted compact polyurethane, echoes the style of the sound absorbent panels, accommodates a drawer in solid wood, and, thanks to the wheels, becomes a flexible element.
Eleven high back work is proposed with a top specially designed to convert the sofa into an office “capsule” conceived to allow the users to carry on their activities in the modern soft seating areas of a lounge, an airport, a hotel.
The PearsonLloyd designer duo fashioned this informal but highly functional work space to meet the needs of present-day globetrotters who spend long hours waiting for their flight in airport lounges and want to be able to focus on their work.
Eleven high desk is a ground-breaking desk system that meets the requirements of the most dynamic working environments. A work surface that is both large and flexible is obtained inside the panels that characterise the entire collection.
Eleven high desk is proposed in two versions: one is characterised by a fixed top; the possibility of choosing the height of the side panels (106 cm or 136 cm) enables the users to opt for the degree of privacy they desire. The other version has a table top that can be adjusted for height. This means a choice of seat options is available and new work niches can always be defined to meet evolving needs.
The Alias furniture line-up is greatly enriched with the introduction of new stools for its frame collection. Perfectly in line with the highframe project, which, since 1994, has been one of Alias’s main successes, these fixed stools proposed in 60 and 80 cm. With its visually light and finely proportioned design, Frame stool comes in a wide range of configurations, all of them designed to combine comfort and functionality.
The slim collection of seats designed by British duo PearsonLloyd acquires a new family: slim chair. The shell is made with a mould that ensures high structural strength combined with thickness values reduced to the very minimum, and requires a minimal percentage of glass fibre reinforcement, making for optimal surface quality.
The exhibition concept is part of a broader project, materialias, developed by the company together with studio Fragile, with the aim to create a Catalogue Raisonné of the finishes used by the brand in its collections. Metals, plastic materials, PVC, wood, fabrics, proposed in 120 different colour shades, represent the world of Alias and become part of the design experience in an increasingly significant manner, with the aim of expressing colour through the materials in lieu of through paint.
