Lightweight, discreet and very elegant.

Alessi is one of those companies which embodies a typical phenomenon of Italian industrial culture, namely that of "Italian Design Factories". Situated near Lake Orta in a poor, narrow valley in the Italian Alps, a long-standing tradition in wood and metal handicraft has survived up to this day.
Within the Alessi company, design in the current sense of the term began to gain a foothold under Carlo, who drew on his training as an industrial designer in order to develop virtually all of the products which appeared in their catalogues between 1935 and 1945. In the 1950s, Carlo was replaced by another family member as corporate general manager, giving up altogether his activity as a designer and increasingly relying on the contributions of freelance designers, in accordance with a practice which was to become typical of all "Italian Design Factories" to this day.
