THE WORK

The Alpha chair is a solid-wood all-purpose stackable chair produced using the latest production technologies of shaped wooden furniture. The name Alpha is derived from the strong architectural gesture that gives the chair its inherent strength. The A-shaped structure of the back legs and backrest are organically and sensually moulded into one.
