Design Mario Botta, 2002
18/10 stainless steel
Made in Italy by Alessi

Mario Botta had been working on designing a flower vase for Alessi since 1994, exploring an area that probed the borders of craft work, art and design. Between 2001 and 2002 he concentrated on the design of a stainless steel vase with forms inspired by nature: an abstract and linear trunk of a cut tree, with its branches. Tronco, meaning 'log' in Italian is Botta's creation and is offered in mirror polished 18/10 stainless steel.

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.
