Designer: Marcel Wanders
The elegance of wood.
The natural handcrafted material, beech wood is characterised by knots and veins that make each piece slightly unique. The collection “Dressed in wood”, designed by Marcel Wanders consists of a personal breakfast board, a serving board, two trays, a cheese board, a cake stand with a domed cover in clear thermoplastic resin with a wooden knob and a big round centrepiece. Natural beech wood was chosen by the designer for all the pieces in this collection. “Dressed in wood” is a collection made by artisans in Valle Strona, where the production of wooden artefacts is documented as far back as the sixteenth century. This valley goes down to Lake Orta, where Alessi is headquartered.
The domed cover with wooden knob is part of the project “Dressed in wood”, designed by Marcel Wanders. It can be used with either the cheese board or the cake stand “Dressed in wood”.
