Alpina Furniture Collection Series #01 by RIES

January 10th, 2016 by retail design blog

Alpina is a furniture collection that seeks to relate, with its slender lines and angular geometry, to the spaces it occupies not as volumes but rather as a set of vectors and planes in the air.


Research looks into the capacity of a matrix to mutate in order to conceive formal pieces. By operating on this matrix with the sole premise of preserving its proportions, spatial relationships are established that define the identity of the formal pieces.


A table, a chair, a desk, and a multi-purpose shelf are the four component parts of Alpina’s #01 Series.


This furniture family was projected, produced and documented in Parque Chas, Buenos Aires, Argentina between the months of July and November in 2015.


Materials & Finishes: Square solid steel, microtexutred black powder coat paint, expanded metal sheet, polished copper, plywood, aqua green Formica, leather.
