Design Jiakun Liu, 2012
Anodized aluminum
Made by Alessi

With the "(Un)Forbidden City" operation, Alessi sought to organize the first organic exploration of the potential of Chinese product design. Under the meta project responsibility of Gary Chang, they asked eight Chinese architects to design a tray-container. The Tray, in fact, is a classic in the Alessi range of production - an item on which generations of designers have put themselves to the test. A preview of the research was presented in September 2011 at an exhibition curated by Gary Chang at the China Shijintan Contemporary Art Center in Beijing, during Beijing Design Week.

Jane, designed by Liu Jakun (Jiakun Architects), is part of the project "(Un)Forbidden City". It can be spread out for presentation on the table, or folded up for easy carrying. Slight variation of the angles can make it a little curved up, or one can let it come up with many different forms.

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.
