Pilier Series by Sizar Alexis

Sizar Alexis is a Swedish-Iraqi product and furniture designer that experiments with objects that display serenity through geometrical shapes, while remaining robust in volume. His trademark style is built on creating objects bear a strong character, accomplished through the use of raw and imperfect surfaces in combination with a deep interest in Brutalism and the rich cultural and architectural heritage from ancient Mesopotamia. He uses the delicate character of noble materials juxtaposed with Brutalist angular shapes to create objects that stand the test of time.

The Pilier Series is a series of boldly sculpted furnitures and objects, an appreciation of the raw metal feel and texture. A symbiosis between craftsmanship and industrial production.
