HUB Collection

Francesco Meda and Alberto Meda, 2022

Alberto and Francesco Meda designed HUB for Alias, the collection that, in its rigorous design, interprets a type of modular system that is fixed to the wall. HUB can create different compositions, real furnishing solutions that meet the different needs of the living room: spacious bookcases, practical sideboards and light open wall units extend the different functional possibilities of the living room.
