PearsonLloyd, 2022

SLIM CHAIR STUDIO is the collection of swivel chairs designed by PearsonLloyd.
The characteristic polypropylene shell, a distinctive element of the family, is fixed in the studio versions to a die-cast aluminium base - available with 5 spokes with castors or 4 spokes on feet - specially designed by the British duo for Alias. A collection with a harmonious design, ideal for informal working environments.


Tom Lloyd and Luke Pearson founded PearsonLloyd in 1997 and have since completed a wide variety of projects. The studio has created a research-based “investigative” working approach that balances creations, efficiency, user needs and ergonomics. In 2008, Tom and Luke were awarded the distinction of Royal Designers for Industry by The Royal Society of Arts, and in August 2012 were named in the top 50 designers ‘Shaping the Future’ by Fast-Co Magazine in New York. In 2022 Luke and Tom were bestowed as Honorary Doctors of Design by Nottingham Trent University. In 2011, they designed the Eleven upholstered seating system for Alias, which was accompanied by the coffee tables (2012) and the high back version (2015) as a natural complement. In 2016, they designed the Slim office seating collection and the Twelve sofa, followed by the Ten outdoor upholstery system in 2021. They live and work in London.
