One truly unique range: the professional articles for the bar and for serving wine, designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1979 with assistance from Alberto Gozzi, taking a cue form the perfect cocktails prepared with such expertise by David Niven in those fifties movies. Great attention is paid to the details: the body is thicker at the base and on the edge to avoid possible marking, the handles afford a perfect grip even with just one hand. Amazing Champagne/Wine bucket designed by Italian Master, Ettore Sottsass...... a timeless classic to compliment the most special and warm occasions.
Ettore Sottsass came together with other young designers and architects to form the Memphis Group, and were hailed as innovators of Post-modernism in design and the arts. He inspired generations of architects and designers.
Alessi was founded in 1921 to produce crafted metal accessories for the kitchen. Alberto Alessi launched Alessi into high design through collaborations with designers like Philippe Starck and his Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
