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
