Design by LPWK and Paolo Gerosa.
Part of the Objet Bijou collection, VOILE by LPWK and Paolo Gerosa is a Spaghetti Measure designed for approximately one, two or five servings. This precious utensil's function, derived from Mediterranean culinary traditions, is based on a gesture used when cooking spaghetti which has, by now, been inherited the world over. Its form evokes an image of airy lightness, a symbol of fluidity. It's a small accessory to be displayed in the kitchen, suspended over the scales' gravity, or given as a gift to spaghetti lovers or for those who always get the serving size wrong.
Material(s): 18/10 stainless steel

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
