Designed by Inga Sempé, 2012.
This Risotto Serving Spoon was designed for a competition organized with the magazine "Domus" to celebrate the anniversary of the "Cucchiaio d'Argento" (in English "Silver Spoon") - the historic recipe book which has sold millions of copies worldwide over the course of the last 50 years. For the occasion, Alessi asked five international designers to come up with a new serving spoon. The jury awarded the prize to Inga Sempé, for her ability to design a very simple, rigorous and expressive tool. Offered in 18/10 stainless steel, the IS01 Risotto Spoon is ready to scoop up delicate pastas with style.

Inga Sempé's design vision is greatly inspired by the innovative precision of everyday objects. The Paris-based designer combines clean lines with a characteristic airiness to create pieces that are gracefully streamlined and disarmingly warm. Linear textures and patterns figure prominently in her body of work.View other products by Inga Sempe
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
