Overview

Design by Andrea Morgante, 2011.
By Alessi.

Made of mirror-polished 18/10 stainless steel, the ribbing of the Megaptera Centerpiece expresses a gentle surface deformation, optimizing its structural rigidity without increasing the thickness of the metal sheet. This is what Megaptera whales do when feeding, expanding their ventral grooves to accommodate a larger volume of water.

"Some surfaces in nature are designed to deform beautifully, welcoming changes in volume, or in weight. As they do so, a transient appearance is revealed that is even more beautiful than the original." — Andrea Morgante

Andrea Morgante

Designer: Andrea Morgante

Andrea Morgante was born in Milan in 1972. After receiving a degree in architecture he moved to London where he worked closely alongside Jan Kaplicky for nearly 8 years. Following Kaplicky's death in 2009, Morgante took the lead on the design for the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena.

In 2009 Andrea Morgante established Shiro Studio in London. His work in architecture and product design is characterized by a coherent approach, often influenced by his long term passions for anatomy, digital fabrications, botany, aeronautics and philosophy.

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
