alessi branzi toothpick holder

Design Andrea Branzi, 1991
Pear-wood, chrome-plated brass
Made in Italy by Alessi

The toothpick holder, by Branzi, is designed and constructed with the utmost care in every detail using a hand-crafting process. To use, simply push the ballerina forward by the foot, a drawer opens and she picks up a toothpick for you.

Born in Florence, Italy, Andrea Branzi was one of the founders of the Domus Academy and is one of the members of the EEC Commission for the promotion of the European design. He is an architect and designer as well as critic on magazines such as Domus, Interni, Casabella and Modo. He has also worked with other international design companies such as Cassina, Vitra and Zanotta.

A very clever and beautiful approach. The toothpick holder features a pear-wood body with chrome-plated brass accents.

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.
