Alberto Meda, 2022

Frametable, the iconic Alias table designed by Alberto Meda, has become a system thanks to the introduction of new 60° curved and rectangular elements that, when placed side by side, permit a variety of configurations that are ideal for meetings, conferences and workstations. The FRAMETABLE SYSTEM structure consists of die-cast aluminium legs that reflect the design of the entire collection and are linked together by linear or curved bars, depending on the module. A versatile system capable of responding to the most diverse requirements.
