The ALESSI 2015 Fall/Winter Collection is ready and will be on show for the first time at the HoMi fair in Milan Rho from 12th to 15th of September.
Among the brand new products, Pulcina, the plump espresso coffee maker designed by Michele de Lucchi, one of Ettore Sottsass' favorite young assistants, and the Tea Rex by the late Michael Graves, the new dragon whistle for his legendary kettle. It was designed to be the evolution of the famous little bird.
This collection marks two events of special importance for this network of designers: a joyful arrival and, unfortunately, a sad departure. The arrival of Michele De Lucchi (actually, this had already occurred, on a lesser commercial level, with the wooden tray ‘Quattro muri e due case’ in 2014) and the passing of Michael Graves. Michele was one of Ettore Sottsass’ favorite young assistants.
