Fashion and design, art and gourmet pleasures get together at KASHIYAMA DAIKANYAMA, the new commercial complex in Tokyo’s Daikanyama district designed by Nendo. In this versatile building that awakens the senses of those who explore its multifaceted interior, Alias plays a star role with the attractive and relaxing sofas installed on the balconies: the building is a system of boxes stacked one on top of the other in a staggered arrangement, and each roof is an open-air living room. The sofas of the Dehors collection designed by Michele De Lucchi for Alias, in fact, have been selected to give the guests a hearty welcome and accompany them as they enjoy pleasurable moments of relaxation. Drawing their inspiration from nature, with its irregular and asymmetrical shapes, the seats offer a new interpretation of the concept of exposed structure: formal solidity and stylistic spontaneity combine to form a contemporary nest that envelops the user in the soft embrace of silky cushions. The lively design of the Dehors collection mitigates the severe lines of the architecture and introduces a new, destructured experience of comfort: the large seats invite the body to an infinite variety of positions.
