Liconi Centerpiece

Designed by:  Pierfrancesco Cravel
Manufactured by:  Alessi

The glacial lake of Liconi acted as the muse for this Centerpiece for the table, designed by Pierfrancesco Cravel. In addition to its intrinsic scenographic qualities, selecting a lake as the inspirational model also responds to functional considerations: the surface of the water acts as the table top, the surrounding landscape forms the enclosing perimeter. The design of the surface was obtained by elaborating a high definition, stereoscopic satellite image. The highly-skilled craftsmanship necessary to reproduce a subject with these characteristics in metal was possible only thanks to the expertise Alessi has acquired through years of experience realizing complex surfaces in steel. Its descriptive, evocative form transforms Liconi into an object to put on display, in addition to its nominal function as a Centerpiece. 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.
