Description

As each dish is slotted in between the steel rails, edging closer to the end of the dish washing ritual, you will be singing hallelujah! Or at least that's one take on the design of this dish drainer, inspired by the crescendo of rhythm, movement, length and density—all in a graphic shape that is more optical sculpture than kitchen tool. The thermoplastic resin container is a long-lasting holder for cutlery. A striking note in the "A Tempo" collection for Alessi by Paris based Pauline Deltour. The young designer already counts clients as diverse as MUJI and the city of Munich.

Brand

Alessi

A name nearly synonymous with modern Italian design, Alessi defined the post-modern 1980s with its superstars Philippe Starck and Michael Graves. However, the company was actually founded almost 100 years ago in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi, as a tableware workshop producing items in nickel, chromium and silver-plated brass in Valle Strona in the Italian Alps. Son Carlo Alessi, trained as an industrial designer, brought modernism to the fore in the 1930s and later his brother Ettore Alessi began the practice of collaborating with outside designers.

By the 1970s, the company teamed with the likes of Achille Castiglioni and Ettore Sottsass before ushering in its most iconic decade. Now under Carlo's son Alberto Alessi, collaborations continue with a new generation, including Jasper Morrison, Mario Botta and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. "A true work of design must be able to move people," says Alberto, "to convey feelings, to trigger memories, to surprise, to go against the grain."
