German designer Felix Schwake of the Dortmund based furniture manufacturer Rechtech, has recently created this wonderfully elegant and minimalist lounge chair, ALPHA.

The ALPHA chair consists of specially designed aluminium alloy, which makes for a very light, flexible and stable design – only 8mm thick. Charming design can certainly constitute simplicity and in this instance, ALPHA appears to be just one piece of aluminium elegantly folded like a ribbon.

ALPHA is available in all RAL colours and measures.

  1. Nice form, but a little to low to the ground for my liking. I always have to smile while watching people struggle awkwardly to get out of an elegant piece of design furniture.

    I’m also skeptical about the stacking feature. How do you propose this works?

  2. Wish the curves were more fluent, it looks rather crudely shaped. Also agree with Aaron, you might be able to “stack” or rest 2-3 of those, but no more.

  3. Dear Sir,

    Kindly let us know from where we can get the ALPHA CHAIR in India and what is the name of the importer in India for this product for our reference and further contacts:

    On hearing from you, we shall revert,
