Designed by RIES, a group of young designers, Alpina is a collection of furniture, based on the use of metal declined into four basic elements: table, desk, chair, shelf.
Alpina is a furniture collection that seeks to relate, with its slender lines and angular geometry, to the spaces it occupies not as volumes but rather as a set of vectors and planes in the air.
Research looks into the capacity of a matrix to mutate in order to conceive formal pieces. By operating on this matrix with the sole premise of preserving its proportions, spatial relationships are established that define the identity of the formal pieces.
A table, a chair, a desk, and a multi-purpose shelf are the four component parts of Alpina’s #01 Series.
