Alessi & Doriana + Massimiliano Fuksas'
Colombina Dinnerware Collection
The organic shape of each piece in the Colombina Collection suggests petals. And like a bloom, each can be leafed through, offering a new experience, in this case, of smells, sights and taste. Such a sculptural, flight of exploration stems from the prolific minds of Roman-born architects Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas. For four decades, the highly decorated pair have been at the forefront in their use of new materials and innovative design, from the Peres Peace House, hailed project of the year for 2009/2010 in Israel, to the Armani Ginza Tower in Tokyo and, yes, their geometric tableware, including the Colombina line, for Alessi. From grand halls to tea cups, their shared penchant for recognizing the bold beauty in simple forms is a revelation for us all to enjoy.
