Design Campana Brothers, 2004
18/10 stainless steel
Made in Italy by Alessi

Part of an exquisite series of objects designed by the Campana Brothers. The Blow Up basket manifests the idea of controlled demolition and deconstruction.... only in a most utilitarian manner. The Blow Up basket is a stunning artistic centerpiece.

Despite their quite evident Italian origins, the Campana brothers are actually Brazialian through and through, and they are without doubt to be included amongst the most interesting phenomena of recent young international design. They have brought a healthy breath of fresh Brazilian and sub-equatorial air and poetry to European design.

Castiglioni

Achille Castiglioni (1918 - 2002) was a renowned Italian industrial designer often inspired by everyday things. He made use of ordinary materials, preferring to use minimal materials to create a maximal effect. Born in Milan, Castiglioni studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano University and set up a design office in 1944 with his brothers, Livio Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The brothers held the viewpoint that design must restructure an object's function, form, and production process. ôStart from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means,ö Castiglioni said. He was best known for his lamps, including Flos, Luminator, Bulb, Arco, and the Snoopy Lamp, inspired by the comics character.
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.
