Sizar Alexis is a Stockholm-based designer that experiments with minimal sculptural and geometrical shapes. His work is strongly influenced by his deep interest for Brutalism where he mixes the rawness and a serene like feeling in his design objects.
He constantly strives to experiment with objects that challenge the surroundings with its symmetrical shapes and robustness yet tidiness in volume. A raw and imperfect surface, carefully built to give the design objects its character and a sense of serenity.
