OKOME Collection

Nendo (Oki Sato), 2016

From the collaboration with the Japanese studio Nendo comes OKOME, a family of seats and backrests characterised by soft, rounded forms that bring to mind the natural shapes of pebbles made smooth by water. By combining the different elements together and securing them with a sophisticated hooking system, Alias obtained nine different configurations, specially designed to meet specific needs of workplaces and the hospitality world.
OKOME is capable of creating the most varied scenarios in the most diverse spaces in a rational way.
