The table has been chosen for the high quality of its design by an international jury composed of designers, professors, experts, journalists and will be the protagonist during the Red Dot Design Week from 20 to 24 June 2022, the week in which the award ceremony will take place. 
Frametable outdoor officially joins the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, which has been collecting award-winning objects since 1955.

“It is with great pleasure that we receive the Red Dot: Best of the Best, a very contemporary award in its ability to disseminate the culture of design and innovation applied to the project. We believe that this prestigious award is well deserved for the work done by Alias and Alberto Meda on the frametable outdoor table, a piece that reinterprets a product developed 20 years ago for Alias for the outdoor world, introducing new technical solutions that respond in an innovative way to contemporary needs in this new version. This extraordinary table is back as the protagonist of the Alias collections to illustrate the company's ability to combine stylistic lightness with cutting-edge technology.” Alias.

Frametable is back as the protagonist of the Alias collections to illustrate the company's ability to combine stylistic lightness with cutting-edge technology. Created in 2003 from an idea by Alberto Meda to reduce the elements that make up the traditional table, eliminating the frame and fastening the legs to a self-supporting aluminium honeycomb top, frametable has over time become a best seller in the Alias collections. Thanks to the technological research in which the company has invested since its origins, it has been possible to develop a new system of tops in extruded aluminium that allow the table to be used in the outdoor version, without compromising its design  

identity and aesthetic image. The table tops of frametable outdoor are made of five extruded aluminium slats, which are as thin as possible and have a cross-section that allows them to be attached to the legs in a completely invisible manner, structurally increasing the load-bearing capacity of the table top. Spaced out to allow water to drain away, the slats are fixed to the die-cast aluminium support structure that characterises the entire collection. Available in lengths of 190, 240 and 295 cm, frametable outdoor is available with a matt lacquer finish in various colours. A new, technological and extremely light table that completes the Alias outdoor proposal.
