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.

Jean Nouvel

Jean Nouvel (born 1945 in Fumel, France) studied at the Ecole nationale superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, earning his degree in 1972. He worked with François Seigneur and Gilbert Lezenes for nearly a decade and co-founded the French Architectural Movement “Mars 1976.” The following year he co-founded the Syndicat de l'architecture, a French labor union created for architects. Nouvel continued to be active in the French design community in the '80s and '90s, establishing Ateliers Jean Nouvel in 1994 and designing a number of objects for manufacturers like Alessi and Wittmann. Among the most famous buildings designed by Jean Nouvel include the Institut du Monde Arabe, Fondation Cartier, and Musee du quai Branly in Paris; the Opera de Lyon; Dentsu Tower in Tokyo; and Torre Agbar, Barcelona. In 2008, Nouvel won the Pritzker Prize, one of the world's most respected architectural honors.
