Alexander is a seating system with different forms that can be combined with each other. Squared and curved elements can be used together in the same composition to create areas with an intimate and enveloping atmosphere.
The various modular elements allow for a wide range of arrangements, from L-shaped configurations characterised by the perfect geometry to linear interpretations that can evolve into sinuous profiles thanks to the original Alexander "Drop" curved elements, such as the chaise-longue or the rounded corner modules.
The modules can have high or low backs, or a combination of both, contributing to the versatility of the system. The pieces with higher backseats design alcove points, creating corners of intimacy, where to sit as in a nest of great comfort to read or watch TV. Instead, the elements with lower backs are designed not to obstruct the view of the surrounding space.
Alexander is characterised by the sartorial details of the seams on the corner of the sofa and on the high back/armrest and by the central seam placed on the back cushions.
The base is made of Light Bronze-coloured aluminium bars and keeps the elements raised from the ground, thus conveying a sense of lightness to the suspended volumes.
