Design by John Truex, Cranbrook Academy of Art, 2012.
By Alessi.

A 2008 visit to Bloomfield Hills, Michigan prompted Alberto Alessi to organize a workshop with the Cranbrook Academy of Art, renowned graduate school of architecture, fine art and design. This open-ended material investigation focused on contemporary American product design which comes from a tradition of silversmithing and metalsmithing. The vision for the collaborative workshop was very specific: search for new forms in metal through a hands-on, craft process in the metal shop.

METAL WORKSHOP: Cranbrook for Alessi, was presented in May 2012 at Alessi's Soho store reopening. Several products in Alessi's Fall/Winter 2012 assortment, including the Dear Charlie Banana Holder, resulted from this collaborative workshop. This sculptural, simple "tree" for hanging bananas is made of chrome-plated zamak, a zinc, aluminum and copper alloy.
