Carlo Alessi

Carlo Alessi was the chief designer of the Alessi company from 1935 until the early 80s. He took over the company from his father, Giovanni, after having worked in his metal workshop. Carlo designed many of the notable Alessi pieces, including the “Bombe” series. By the 1950s, he became managing director and moved the company from manufacturing crafted eating and drinking products into welcoming external designers from all over the world. Collaborations with artists such as Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Richard Sapper, and Achille Castiglioni helped bring Allesi into a new decade of design. Phillipe Starck’s Juicy Salif and Michael Graves bird-shaped kettle whistle are among many well-known products of the Alessi range. Carlo Alessi remained company president until his death in 2009.
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.
