Home/Gym/Office by Philippe Starck for Alias’s Fitness

Philippe Starck spends his time designing some of the most beautiful everyday objects we’ve ever seen. From juicers, to hard drives, to a set of stunning fitness gear including free weights and jump ropes.
Here working alongside Eugeni Quitllet, Philippe Starck has recently designed Home/Gym/Office for Alias’s fitness collection. The HGO collection is composed of a gym mat, barbell, jump rope, multipurpose hook, and rack. The gym mat is constructed of leather and polyurethane foam with non-slip rubber used in the lower portion.

The HGO barbells have a smooth and uniform design, a contrasting aesthetic from the ubiquitously severe and angled dumbbell. The weights are made in chromed casting brass with thermoplastic rubber. The handles on the jump rope share the same ergonomic grip, and are manufactured using aluminum and PVC. Even the jump rope is available in a version with a leather rope connecting the handles, for those who care more about how their gear looks than their bodies.
