Alessi’s 2015 Spring/Summer Collection

I recently met with Mr Paolo Cravedi, Managing Director for Alessi Americas in their San Francisco flagship store to view the 2015 Spring/Summer Collection. As you may know, I am personally a big fan of Alessi and their work, so I am always excited to see what’s new.

Trinity by Adam Cornish
The Australian designer followed up his initial centerpiece design with three additions to make a line of baskets. The design, coupled with the laser cutting and then the final molding process almost make it feel like a piece of origami come to life. Check out the “making of” video below.

Bulla by Valerio Sommella
At first glance, this looks like a beautiful jewelry piece — and it is. But it’s really a bottle opener. I don’t think any of us have ever owned a bottle opener as exquisite in shapes and lines as this.

Opus by Guido Venturini
This is one of my favorites. The “embroidered” patterns on this piece perfectly cut out by laser technology makes for a perfect centerpiece in the kitchen or on the dining table. In addition to Alessi’s signature clean look in stainless steel, I look forward to additional colors down the road. This could be the beginning to a beautiful line of new products.

Dressed in Wood by Marcel Wanders
Woodwork and traditionalism are not things that Alessi is generally known for; however, with the combination of design and laser cutting technology, Alessi brings it all to the next level. This series of kitchenware includes trays, cake stands, cheese boards and a centerpiece. See how the centerpiece is made in the video below.
