Overview

Design by Giulio Iacchetti, 2012.
By Alessi.

A hand-written letter may be considered a special gift these days — something from the heart, something to cherish. An exquisite letter opener is not just a tool or a means to an end, but a fulfilling part of the process.

Carefully crafted in die-cast stainless steel, the slender sculptural form of the Pes Letter Opener is both a useful and elegant desk accessory, as well as a collectible object.

Giulio Iacchetti

Designer: Giulio Iacchetti

Giulio Iacchetti, born in 1966, has worked in the field of industrial design since 1992. He alternates this activity with teaching at many universities and schools of design in Italy and abroad. He works as artistic director for important brands like iB rubinetterie, Ceramica Globo and Il Coccio design edition. For Corraini Edizioni he has edited the book Italianit√ , a collection of contributions on objects, symbols, odors, flavors and sounds that contribute to form the consciousness of the Italian people. The distinctive characteristics of his work are research and definition of new object typologies, like the Moscardino, the multiuse biodegradable utensil for which, in 2001, together with Matteo Ragni, he wone the Compasso d'Oro, with the object becoming part of the permanent design collection of MoMA New York. The concept and coordination of the group project Eureka Coop, for Coop Italia, brought design into the major retailing circuit and focused on the new generation of Italian design.

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
