  • New from Alessi - timeless Italian design

    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.

    Alessi Forma Cheese Grater 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 inspiered by the trees that surround their house in Lucca. The flower vase is produced at the factory in Crusinallo, Omegna, using a cutting and laser perforating process on the steel sheet, which is subsequently shaped and welded. The design of “Barkvase”, as its name suggests, is inspired by tree bark and its perforated pattern recalls knots in the 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 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 The cartoon men created by the King-Kong team are a symbol and icon of mirror polished design based on the use of "affective codes", so much so that they are one of its most oft-cited examples. The "standing men" have appeared on objects from the farthest corners of 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 introduces his wall clock, inspired by the sun that illuminates and paces the day. The designer favours natural materials which transform, improve even, over time: for this object, he chose bamboo, giving rise to an industrial product that retains the characteristic features of an item that is 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.

  • Ron Arad - acclaimed artist, designer and architect

    For those of you lucky enough to be heading to London, UK before September 26th, like this happy blogger, check out the Ron Arad exhibition at the Ben Brown Gallery in the Mayfair area. The exhibition at Ben Brown Gallery is the culmination of Ron Arad's most recent work, spanning sculpture, hand-crafted studio pieces and industrial design, and showcases the artist's constant experimentation with the boundaries and possibilities of materials, from metals to wood and glass.

    GRShop.com offers several of Ron Arad's home furnishings designed for Vitra, Magis and Alessi.

     

    magis_voido_rocking_chair_d Ron Arad's Voido Rocking Chair for Magis is a statement in movement and ingenuity with materials. Made of rotational-molded polyethylene, it is available in black or white.

     

    Movement is a central theme in Arad's oeuvre. His pieces often encourage interaction, expressed both in his functional designs and purely aesthetic pieces. Drawing inspiration from William Morris's infamous quote "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful", Ron Arad combines cutting-edge techniques with expert craftsmanship.

     

    With its undulating, sculptural form, Ron Arad’s Magis Folly Bench will spark conversations while providing a comfortable place to chat. Molded in nearly indestructible polyethylene for both indoor and outdoor use, the bench’s seat and back surfaces merge seamlessly and encourage lounging any which way.

    Educated at the Jerusalem Academy of Art and later at the Architectural Association in London, Ron Arad is an Israeli artist, industrial designer and architect who lives and works in London. He was awarded the 2011 London Design Week Medal for design excellence and became a Royal Academician of the Royal Academy of Arts in 2013.

     

    The elegant plastic shell of T-Vac offers comfortable seating not only in interior spaces but also in outdoor settings: special additives in the molded polypropylene shell help to prevent the colour from fading, and the powder-coated finish of the base makes the chair suited for use on the terrace or in the garden. Since the chair can be stacked, it is especially useful in places where large numbers of chairs are required.

    Ron Arad has teamed up with Magis once again, but this time he was determined to come up with a rotational-moulded design with a difference. This was done by making a continuous looped ribbon with a defined inside and outside texture that serves to make the continuous band more readable, and like stuffed pasta the ribbon appears to be inflated.
