Argentinian-born, Zurich-based Alfredo Haberli continues his design work with Alias by introducing a new line of modular furniture entitled Legnomobile. Available in three sizes, as a chest of drawers and a wardrobe, Legnomobile is composed of two elements stacked on top of a plank with polished feet. Each component of the system can be dismantled and interchanged, making Legnomobile a bit of an adult Legos-albeit, far more stylish and utilitarian.

The Legnomobile pieces come in white, wenge wood, and acid green. The small chest of drawers in white is a perfect complement for the Egg Chair-I can see those two working together in a minimalist room with a great splash of color, perhaps from an Eric Johnston sculpture or a wall of Riviera Rollo wallcovering. In acid green and wenge wood, Legnomobile "manages to unite tradition with innovation, joy and energy." Pair the green with the fanciful: Moooi's Horse Lamp or Mattson's RGB lighting. Legnomobile's compartments make up a fluid whole while still maintaining each piece's autonomy-Haberli is saying something about deconstruction here, but the real joy is in the furniture's construction.
