Twig is a beautifully minimalist chair by Japanese designers, Nendo — one of our favourite studios — for Italian furniture brand ALIAS, who specialise in furniture made from aluminium.
The idea of the project was to create a chair made of four aluminium twigs and a seat. While the aluminium structure of all of the chairs is the same, five upper portion unit variations feature differing shapes, colours, and materials.
A number of different shapes and sitting experiences are achieved by fitting these units onto the four legs with this creative option. Therefore, different shapes and materials can be used to cater to the person’s needs. Choices for seat material include wood, plastic, and fabric. I love the concept, aesthetic and practicality at the same time.
When the seat and upper portion are removed, the aluminium frames of multiple seats can be stacked, making storage convenient and reducing potential transportation costs.
