3909: A Cross Cultural Icon

"Taking cues from Michael Graves’ original approach to the 9093 kettle by mixing and introducing various influences into the design process, the 3909 kettle references basketball and introduces an iconic silhouette" - Alaska Alaska

1328x970 Transgression v1


Transgression: rules are needed, of course! But accepting a system of rules also risks creating a static view of the world and - in the case of this industry - can interfere with development. Acceptance of the risk linked to the transgression of existing rules is a constant in Italian design. I believe that a light-handed touch of "transgression" in conventional rules of design, marketing or aesthetics, can be desirable to ensure true product innovation. - Alberto Alessi

Project 001: A Collaboration with Virgil Abloh

Virgil Abloh’s Occasional Object Cutlery Set: A new take on cutlery by the fashion designer, is the first new project of Alessi’s next 100 years.

1328x970 Thingness v 1


Thingness: Understood as the ability to tap the deep essence of an object, its true raison d’être - which is a constant prerogative of the best design projects -. We can say that an object attains its ‘thingness’ when it represents and synthesises that given gesture or operation for which it has been conceived and designed; in other words, it takes on a symbolic value and becomes an archetype of its category. How difficult this is to achieve! - Alberto Alessi

1328x970 poetry v 1


Poetry: I believe that to be a good designer, you must first be a poet. Poetry - from the Greek "poiesis" - means creation. The objective of a designer is to create something that makes us look at ourselves from within and raise ourselves a little above the level of material existence; in short, to live our lives really to the full.

1328x970 Borderline v 1


Borderline: Working on the borderline is the destiny of an Italian design factory, like Alessi: we explore the line of what is possible and try each time to go beyond it, or rather to push the line back a little further. This is our idea of progress and our contribution to the evolution of consumer society.

1328x970 Research lab

Research Lab

Research Lab: I consider Alessi to be an industrial research laboratory dedicated to a continuous mediation between the immensity of creative possibilities and the needs, or rather the dreams, of the public. Several hundred of the most stimulating designers of the various eras we have been through have worked with us. Their work is documented and preserved in our museum.

1328x970 Irony v 1


Irony: people often ask me why irony as a rhetorical notion is often to be found in our products. I do not really know how to answer precisely, for in actual fact the use of this notion is very much linked to the characteristics of the various designers, and probably responds to the attempt we make not to take ourselves too seriously, to lighten up our daily lives.

1328x970 Hybridization


Hybridisation: Mixing of different cultures and disciplines. One of Alessi’s typical characteristics is that of seeking to combine the culture of design with industrial culture. The process is not an easy one, requiring constant application in the mediation between poetry and the market, leading towards what might appear to be a compromise but is in actual fact a little masterpiece of design.

1328x970 Beyond v 1


Beyond: or the quest to go one step further and yet another. Not just for the fact of doing so, but for the sake of doing something different. But in an attempt to evolve our way of working and our world of objects. So, avoid sitting on the comfortable laurels of routine and reiterate practice.

1328x970 Paradox v 1


Paradox: From the Greek "para-dóksa", is generically something that surprises us thanks to the way it runs counter to everyday logic, giving a new slant to common opinion and daily experience, and this makes this thing extraordinary, or at least bizarre. In Alessi, we have often made use of this literary notion to help us reach beyond the apparently common-place nature of everyday objects. - Alberto Alessi

1328x970 Art v 2


Art: "I have always considered design to be a creative discipline with an artistic and poetic input. It brings a touch of transcendence to our consumer society, to distinguish between function and emotion, and to provoke surprise while touching our souls with beautiful objects" - Alberto Alessi.

1328x970 Industrial craftmanship v 3

Industrial Craftsmanship

Industrial Craftsmanship: the Alessi factory is something between a mass-production industry and a craftsman's workshop, in the sense that almost all the operations are done with machines but these machines are used with the spirit of the craftsman, not conditioned by the logic of the assembly line; they are readily used to bend to the expressive needs of the designer.
