Port Basket - Brass

Designed by:  Lluis Clotet
Manufactured by:  Alessi

For Fall/Winter 2017, Alessi has introduced a range of its classic forms like the sculptural Port Basket in brass.  All part of Alessi’s new Extra Ordinary Metal Project that explores the aesthetic qualities of this material with an innovative surface treatment – Etruscan granulation.  This time-honored decorative technique finds its roots in jewelry making in Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Mesopotamia – it was refined in complexity by the Etruscans.  Subsequently abandoned for centuries, Etruscan granulation was revived by goldsmiths in the Renaissance.  Alessi has recently applied a Fibonacci geometric sequence to this relief technique to several bowls, baskets, trays, and centerpieces – the results are just extraordinary.  A special coating has been applied to all of the Extra Ordinary Metal Project pieces that prevents the brass developing a patina. Manufactured by Alessi.

Designed in 2001/2017.

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.
