Design Peter Zumthor, 2006
Wood, metal grinder
Made in Italy by Alessi

After meeting with Alessi, Peter Zumthor was interested in producing objects with themes close to his heart. He presented his PZ01 design which was originally designed as a one-off piece for use in his own house. PZ01 is a pepper mill, made of precious European wood essences, which at a first glance looks like the mushroom-shaped pillars that support the Valsesia mountain chalets, but extended in an attempt, perhaps, to reach the essence of the manual mill.

The Swiss designer Peter Zumthor is one of the most interesting and courted international architects of the 21st century. He lives and works in his atelier located in an out-of-the-way village in the German-Swiss Mountains.

A beautiful and elegant piece for display and everyday use. The PZ01 features a metal grinder and is available in your choice of either mountain maple or walnut wood.

11.5" h | 2.75" dia.

Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombé, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
