Designers

Alias revisits a key archive project by Pio Manzù, the brilliant protagonist of Italian automobile design during the sixties.‎ The idea materialised at the GAMeC of Bergamo where the archives of Pio Manzù’s work are stored.‎ The attention was drawn to a prototype chair clearly taking its inspiration from the automobile industry.‎ The re-edition began to take form and finally reach its completion.‎ The decision was made to integrate a footrest on a four-star base, designed to be wholly coherent with the design and proportions of the chair.‎
This journey of culture and design has given Alias the opportunity to discover a deeprooted affinity with the historical figure of Pio Manzù.‎ One of the first designers to have conceived the man-machine relationship beyond mere function, considering aspects of safety and well-being, Manzù’s uncompromising approach to design and his familiarity with technology made him a genuine pioneer in the sphere of ergonomics.‎ Similarly
to an ottoman, the chair is made up of a supporting structure in dense polyurethane co-formed with polyurethane foam.‎ The base is cast aluminium, polished and enameled in various colours.‎ Both pieces are presented in an elegant leather upholstery with a choice of several shades.‎

Ottoman with shell in compact polyurethane moulded together with expanded polyurethane, 4-star base in die-cast aluminium, external shell in compact black enamelled polyurethane.‎ Internal shell in pelle frau® leather.‎
