presented at milan design week 2011, is the ‘tagliatelle’ chair by british designer jasper morrison for italian furniture company alias. the design is a reinterpretation of alias’s iconic spaghetti chair 30 years after its initial introduction. a highly innovative follow-up, ‘tagliatelle’ continues the perfect synthesis of technology and form incorporated in the spaghetti chair, extracting and reformulating each and every element. the structure is stove-enameled tubular steel, with the back and seat rests consisting of interwoven elastic strips, available in a single color or a combination of shades. the resulting form is zen inspired; of studied yet simple elegance. a harmonious and balanced composition derived from meticulous attention to each detail; the calculations for the diameter of the tubular steel, the structure’s interlocking system, the invisible system used to secure the elastic strips.
