Grind

Designed by:  William Alsop
Manufactured by:  Alessi

Will Alsop and Frederico Grazzini have rethought the way in which a grinder for salt, pepper, or spices, can be configured – in this instance… upside down.  As Alsop observed, “commonly these instruments have the “mouth” on the bottom and always leave some pepper or salt on the tablecloth, ours, having the “mouth” on top, is free from this problem.”   Grind’s bulbous, fluted form feels wonderful in the hand and provides a less messy, yet visually engaging way to present your grinder on the table.  Available in cast aluminum or black powder coated finish. Manufactured by Alessi.

Alessi

Founded in 1921, Alessi is one of Italy’s leading manufacturers of home accessories, collaborating with designers and architects to create functional objects that are designed to delight and often challenge preconceived notions of how an object can look. Alessi began as a producer of brass and nickel sheet metal and by the 1950s had repositioned itself as a specialist in manipulating stainless steel. By the 1970s and 1980s, Alessi was collaborating with Ettore Sottsass, Aldo Rossi, Achille Castiglioni, Michael Graves, Phillipe Starck, and Richard Sapper – creating design icons that are still produced today.  Today Alessi works with hundreds of artists, industrial designers, and architects to create its core collection – flatware, dinnerware, glassware, cookware, office, clocks, watches, and virtually every type of tabletop or kitchen accessory imaginable. Supplementing its vast core offering, Alessi presents two seasonal collections every year that highlight new designers and typologies. Alessi’s designs are included in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. Switch Modern not only shows well over 1,000 Alessi designs on our website, we also have the same commitment to stocking and presentation in our large Alessi-branded store in Atlanta.
