APD03 "A Tempo" Waste Basket - Discontinued
Note: This product is no longer available.
Design by Pauline Deltour, 2010.
Working with a very elemental material, as if it were a graphic element, allowed designer Pauline Deltour to highlight the aesthetic qualities of metal wire, creating some very special optical effects.
The "A Tempo" collection of home furnishings, including the APD03 Waste Basket, reflects a minimal and poetic interpretation of the craftsmanship involved when working with steel wire, much like the very first items sold by Alessi long ago.
The APD03 "A Tempo" Waste Basket is made of mirror polished 18/10 stainless steel.
Material(s): 18/10 stainless steel
Dimensions: 11.8" Dia X 12.1" H
Beautiful waste basket
By: Jason W., Renter (Boston, MA)
I needed a waste basket for my home office and this was the best looking waste basket I could find at a cost of a hundred dollars or less. As noted elsewhere, small items will fall through the wires, which is why I give this 4 stars and not five stars. Fast shipping by Y living resulted in receiving the item only a few days after my order. I'm very happy with it, and look forward to getting some of the other similar items such as the fruit baskets for my kitchen.

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 AlessiView other products from Alessi
