Design by Aldo Rossi, 2008.
This year, Alessi is introducing its first collection of miniatures: a series comprising a number of classics from the last sixty years of Alessi's production, like the La Conica Miniature Espresso Coffee Maker by designer Aldo Rossi. The collection was created with special consideration for collectors of Alessi's products, to give them the chance to complete their private collections of authentic objects, and with considerable savings in terms of both space and expenditure.
The tiny collector's item hails from original 1984 design.
Material: 18/10 stainless steel and copper bottom.
Notes: This is a miniature reproduction of the original, iconic Alessi product.
Arrives in gift packaging.
Dimensions: 3.12" H x 1.56" W x 1.014" D
Model(s): ALS-90002-6-M 90002-6-M
Born in Milan (1931-1997), he is considered by many to be the greatest Italian architect of the second half of the 20th century. His life as an architect started with Gardella and Zanuso. An author of abstraction, reduction and brevitas, his severe language of primary shapes, geometrical patterns and silent evocation created some of the most intensely poetic works of architecture and design in his age.
The Alessi company was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921 in Omegna, Italy. Giovanni, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and the home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. Giovanni's son Carlo, trained in industrial design, joined him at Alessi and was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s through the mid 1940s.
During the war years, Alessi produced stars for uniforms and mechanical parts for Savoia Marchetti airplanes. After the war, thanks to an enormous demand for brass ladles for the U.S. army, the Alessis expanded the company and started mass production. Carlo's brother Ettore, who joined the company in 1945, was the first to bring outside designers to the company, such as the architects Carlo Mazzeri, Luigi Massoni and Anselmo Vitale. Since that time, the range of products offered by Alessi has expanded to include such items as office accessories and electrical appliances, in collaboration with a growing range of contemporary designers such as Jasper Morrison and Philippe Starck, all the while maintaining Alessi's commitment to design and quality.
