"On a personal level, these objects are part of my childhood memories: I always saw them used in my parents' house. On a professional level, the "normalcy" of these household objects has always struck me. They weren't just "normal" in the sense that they were used everyday at home. They were examples of an era of the consumer society which was destined to disappear quickly: a time I'd call pre-design, prior to the phenomenon of Designer goods in all of our homes." — Alberto Alessi

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
