E LA NAVE VA ARMCHAIR - 02A By Alias
Fabric small sofa
Fabric, Multi-Layer Wood
Atelier Oï joins the team of Alias designers with their sofa “e la nave va” (literally, and the ship sails on). The journey of search and the constructivist approach of the Swiss designers goes well with the DNA of Alias, a company that has always given priority to construction principles over formal design requirements.
The structure of the sofa uses a system of visible slats inspired from the construction of wooden boat hulls: elastic ribs support the cushions and are secured to two wooden rails suspended on stylish aluminium feet.

“e la nave va” is a vibrant project, which interacts with those who use it in a marvellous balance between formal elegance and ergonomics. The textile belt that keeps the structure together distributes the loads evenly and in doing so enables the sofa to adapt perfectly to a person’s body, for enhanced elasticity and optimal sturdiness.
