Alberto Meda, 2016

Ideal for dynamic work environments, BIPLANE HIGH is the high table collection designed by Alberto Meda, an evolution of the iconic BIPLANE project. It is characterised by the strong, slender leg with a V-shaped section that reduces the use of aluminium to a minimum and maintains great structural strength. The result is a range of high, visibly light tables. As in the original design, in BIPLANE HIGH the aluminium legs are attached to a central sub-top and the table top, thereby forming a solid structure. BIPLANE HIGH responds to contemporary work and meeting patterns, where the use of furniture is more dynamic, an example of Alias' constant commitment to the search for more varied solutions.
