We love the hatched backrest found on the Twig chair designed by Sayaka Ito of Japanese firm Nendo for Italian furniture brand Alias, a company that specialises in aluminium furniture.

As one of five options for the deconstructed, pared down chair (you can see the reverse progression after the jump) it is made up of four branch-like aluminium supports and a seat.  While overall the shape of the chair is consistent, slight variations can be made in the shape, colours and materials used on the upper portion with the addition of various connectors and backrests.  Choices for seat material include wood, plastic and fabric while the backrests are made of transparent lacquered solid ash wood.
