To celebrate the brand’s historical strength and origins in tubular metal, Altek commissioned dai to create not just a line of furniture, but also its corresponding identity. The resulting “Linea Vertigo” line is simple without being plain, and celebrates the company’s Italian and industrial heritage. The products can be used as stand-alone pieces or as part of a complete system, and are designed using minimal parts for maximum structural strength. To fully express the line’s linear design language, dai developed the corresponding brand expressions, including print collateral and website design.
