Alessi, the Italian design company, has been creating amazing products for your home since 1921. Collaborating with starchitects such as Zaha Hadid and internationally recognized designers such as Michael Graves, Philippe Starck and Richard Sapper Alessi has produced some of the absolute best iconic designs in the world. And they are always producing new products to enhance your life. Here are some recent releases.
The Alessi Forma Cheese Grater was designed by the Pritzker prize-winning architect, Zaha Hadid. It is the perfect expression of her ability to absorb facets of the visual arts and convert them into objects with fluid and dynamic shapes. It is like a small, sculptural tabletop piece of architecture. The Forma Cheese Grater was designed to mold to the shape of your palm, making it easy and pleasant to hold.
The Alessi Barkvase Flower Vase, designed by Michael Boucquillon and Donia Maaoui, is inspired by the trees that surround their house in Lucca, Italy. The vase is produced using a laser perforating process on steel. The design of Barkvase, as its name suggests, recalls tree bark and knots in wood grain.
Alessi has been described as a “Dream Factory”, which uses its products to make people’s dreams come true, providing them with the art and poetry that they seek in life.
The Alessi family of Giro products offers a wide range of tableware that offer stainless steel pieces for your home. The new Giro flatware collection by designer Ben van Berkel riffs off the very successful Alessi Girotondo Collection by the design team King-Kong.
The Alessi Girotondo Fruit Bowl is part of the Girotondo Collection created by the King-Kong design team. The "standing men" have appeared on objects from the farthest corners of the Alessi tradition, like trays and baskets, and then they multiplied, invaded and conquered other groups of objects - and not just in the kitchen and at the table.
The Alessi Raggiante Wall Clock, designed by Michele de Lucchi, was inspired by the sun that illuminates and paces the day. The designer favours natural materials which transform and improve over time. For this object he chose bamboo, creating a cross between art and handicraft.
Open to change and international development, Alessi has a strong bond with the traditions and cultural background of Italy and continues to be synonymous with handcrafted objects, produced with the help of machines.
The Alessi Nomu Collection was designed by the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Nomu means "drink" in Japanese and is the perfect name for the Alessi Nomu Double Wall Thermo Insulated Jug.
The Alessi Nomu Double Wall Vacuum Flask is suitable for both hot and cold drinks, and it preserves the flavour and aroma of beverages. A functional, practical and elegant object thanks to the minimalist simplicity and clean-cut shape, perfect for the home, the office or any activity.
