Joe Colombo

Cesare "Joe" Colombo’s educational career in painting began in 1949 at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, and studied afterwards until 1954 Architecture at Politecnico di Milano University. In 1951, he joined the Movimento Nucleare, founded by Sergio D´Angelo and Enrico Baj as both an active painter and sculptor within abstract Expressionism. After joining the Art Concept Group in 1955, Colombo gave up painting to promote his design career. In 1959, Colombo had to take over the family company, which produced electric appliances, and started to experiment with new construction and production technologies.
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.
