glass set in automatically-blown crystal glass. the volumes of the glasses for water and wine are carefully calibrated. they were designed both for everyday dining and for use in sophisticated wine-bars.
platebowlcup bone china tableware and glass family glasses take their place alongside the knifeforkspoon cutlery(2005), thus forming the first complete alessi “entry level” tableware collection in alessi’s catalogues. it gives me great pleasure to use the term entry level, which i consider a kind of a little of “merit”. it is true that the price of these household objects is highly accessible, but this has not compromised the quality of design.
we feel that this design expresses the contribution that “a di alessi” has made to truly democratic design. jasper has said: “i like the ides of a democratic wine glass which is slightly more formal than the others, to be used to give the table an easy aspect of a “dinner” rather than just dinner”. i would like to add that his quest for anti-glamour ‘normality’ paradoxically gives his designs an air of sophisticated simplicity, which is a good description of one of the ambitions of the “a di alessi’ brand.
