Design by Claudia Raimondo, 2013.
Crafted from a sheet of steel, Alessi's CR01/37 Joy No. 1 Centerpiece is a dimensional centerpiece. With embossed sides and an uneven, jagged rim, the irregular texture creates a fascinating play on light, enhancing the artistic craftsmanship of the object. Generous proportions enhance the aesthetic qualities of the metal while the glossy finish helps emphasize its reflective nature.
Material(s): 18/10 stainless steel
Dimensions: 14.5" Dia X 4.09" H
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
