Crafted by some of the most respected designers in the world, Alias products are highly expressive and yet minimalist in style. Their story began in 1979 with Giandomenico Belotti's "Spaghetti Chair", one of Alias's first creations to become part of the MoMA collection in New York City. All Alias products are manufactured in Italy at plants located within 30 miles of their facilities at Grumello del Monte and Motta di Livenza. Alias consistently seeks to minimize environmental impact through policies involving every phase of its operations.
Design is a true vocation for Alias, even in the choice of its designers — well-known international names from different generations and with different training, such as: Giandomenico Belotti, Alberto Meda, Jasper Morrison, Patrick Norguet, Alfredo Häberli, James Irvine, and Michele de Lucchi. Over the years, Alias has established a special working relationship with each of these names, and the Alias inclination towards experimentation has fostered in every project the development of each designer's own particular qualities.
Jasper Morrison is one of today's most influential industrial designers. He is renowned for his elegant and straightforward style. Born in London in 1959, Morrison studied at the Royal College of Art in London. He pursued further studies at the Hochschule der Kunste in Berlin on a fellowship. In 1986 he founded his own design studio in London.
Jasper Morrison became a leading figure of "New Simplicity", a movement that advocated a more modest and also more serious approach to design. In addition to furniture, he has also created lamps, home accessories, textiles, a tram system for the city of Hanover, Germany, and a bus shelter for the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein.View other products by Jasper Morrison
