Beautiful & Classic

By: M.W., Homeowner (Connecticut)

After much research and deliberation, I decided to purchase this Alessi cocktail shaker (and replace the cheap versions we've had for too long). It was completely worth the price. This shaker is sturdy, beautiful, easy to use and to clean: it's perfect. Be prepared, though: when it first arrived, it fit so tightly that I feared it might be defective. But after I finally eased the shaker from the top, it's never been an issue again. It's great to have a cocktail shaker with a pedigree! The martinis have never tasted better.

elegant, glossy, high class.

By: Timothy R., Homeowner (glendale az)

This is a fine gift for someone who has everything. Pair it up with a fine set of martini glasses and you have the perfect gift to please the choosy recipient.

Designer: Carlo Mazzeri

Born in Oleggio (Novara) in 1927, Carlo Mazzeri graduated in architecture from the Istituto Universitario di Architettura in Venice in 1956 and, after an early collaboration with Carlo Scarpa in Venice, with the architect Mario Righini's studio he took part in the competition for the Colonia Olivetti in Brusson and the Carrara Chamber of Commerce, and took one of the top places. In 1957 he designed the cocktail shaker "870" with Luigi Massoni, which was one of the first Alessi objects designed by external collaborators and which is still in production and can be found in bars worldwide. In the '60s and '70s with Anselmo Vitale he designed a complete collection of objects for Alessi which were primarily for use in the hotel industry. He was involved in civil and industrial construction, responsible among other things for the Alessi plant in Omegna (1960-1971), the Girmi electrical household appliances factory (1962) and the Lagostina offices (1964), which were also in Omegna, the renovation of the driers and the new warehouse for 3M Italia in Ferrania (1970) and the Salumificio Romano Mainelli in Oleggio (1972). In the field of industrial design he has also collaborated with Girmi, Lagostina, Bialetti, Indesit, Fonderie Filiberti and Triplex. In 1973 he opened a studio of architecture in Novara, becoming involved in civil architecture, restoration and town planning. View other products by Carlo Mazzeri

Luigi Massoni

Designer: Luigi Massoni

Luigi Massoni (Milan, 1930) designer and architect, was responsible for the A&D in Cermenate (Como). After a period of training at the Collettivo di Architettura in Milan and his first professional experiences between 1953 and 1955, he began his design career by making the cocktail shaker (1957, with Carlo Mazzeri) and the Serie 5 containers, which are still in production, for Alessi (V.). Between 1957 and 1960, with C.De Carli (V.) he contributed to the professional and production renewal, participating in various events and in the foundation of the magazine "Il Mobile Italiano" (V.). In 1959, by taking into partnership a group of furniture manufacturers, he became the organiser of the foundation of Mobilia (V.) and that same year he also joined Boffi (V.) as a production coordinator and designer, creating some of the first ever modular systems for the home and kitchen. It was from this experience that, still in his capacity as designer and art director, he enhanced the image of Poltrona Frau (V.)(1968-1976); Fratelli Guzzini (V.)(1963-1976), he designed the set of bowls Bolo cubo (1962) and the dinner service Vanessa (1969);iGuzzini (V.)(1965-1976), this relationship was later revived in the early 1990s, when he also worked with Cedit, Gabbianelli (V.), Sirrah (V.) and Venini (V.).

Alessi. Art and Poetry.

Alessi is a family owned Italian design company, founded in 1921. Giovanni Alessi, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. He was later joined by his son Carlo who was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s and early 1940s. In the mid 1940s Alessi began to work with outside designers. The current Alessi catalog is the result of a collaboration with over 500 designers from all over the world.

"A true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories, to surprise, to go against the grain. From this point of view, design intended to conjure up images in people's minds, which makes them a bit happier, still has tremendous potential." — Alberto Alessi
