Concept

The ancient craft of origami, the art that transforms paper into a variety of shapes by folding and sculpting it, provided the inspiration for Time, the armchair designed by Alfredo Häberli for Alias. The basic principle of this project, in fact, is the transformation of a simple two-dimensional sheet into a three-dimensional shell. Time was born of the gesture that the designer makes in giving shape to a shell characterised by great stylistic balance and unique ergonomic characteristics. The die-cutting process performed on the sheet, which consists of a sandwich of wood and composites, enables the parts to be fitted together seamlessly, and creates a highly ergonomic, enveloping design.
