alessi fruit basket - sugar & cream set

Design Kazuyo Sejima & Ryue Nishizawa, 2007
18/10 stainless steel
Made in Italy by Alessi

"We sought to create a set that would make people happier at table" - Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa

"Sejima and Nishizawa draw in masterly fashion on nature, clustering together, as in a fruit basket, all the pieces of the set, which become apples, pears and silver fruit, an unlikely basket of high and subtle poetry, at the same time intellectual, feminine and fabulous." - A. Mendini, April 2003

The Fruit basket collection includes a teapot, creamer, sugar bowl and containers all in 0.8mm stainless steel. Each of the main structures, which is made in a single block without welding, are made by drawing with subsequent trimming operations. The upper edges were designed to prevent the lid from falling inside. The interiors are etched-sandblasted and the exteriors are polished.

In 1995 Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa established the Sanaa partnership. They are active internationally in urban planning, landscape and interior design, exhibition installations and industrial design.

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 BombÚ, 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.
