Alessi - (un)forbidden city collection by alessi

, unica home
with the “(un)forbidden city” operation alessi sought to organize the first organic exploration of the potential of chinese product design.
under the meta project responsibility of gary chang, alessi asked eight chinese architects to reinterpret one of the most archetypal of their products, the tray.
a preview of the research was presented in september 2011 at an exhibition curated by gary chang at the china shijintan contemporary art center in beijing, during beijing design week.

“the other major new presentation under the “officina alessi” are the results of the “(un)forbidden city” operation. this was our first exploration into chinese design: eight trays and containers conceived by eight different architects selected among the most interesting exponents of contemporary architecture in that country, leading us into a new world and a new culture, as fascinating as it is distant, mysterious and promising”… alberto alessi
