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.
Sizar Alexis was born in Ankawa, just outside the city of Erbil in northern Iraq. His Chaldean roots puts his lineage in a straight line back to 5000 BC in ancient Mesopotamia. In 1997, he moved to Sweden with his family and settled in Eskilstuna. During his studies at Beckmans College of Design, he started to explore his interest in designing objects and furniture for the home. He holds bachelor’s degrees in Engineering (2009) and Fine Arts (2019).
