Design Pierfrancesco Cravel, 2013
18/10 Stainless Steel
Made by Alessi

The glacial lake of Liconi acted as the muse for this Centrepiece, designed by Pierfrancesco Cravel. In addition to its intrinsic scenographic qualities, selecting a lake as the inspirational model also responds to functional considerations: the surface of the water acts as the table top, the surrounding landscape forms the enclosing perimeter. The design of the surface was obtained by elaborating a high definition, stereoscopic satellite image. The highly-skilled craftsmanship necessary to reproduce a subject with these characteristics in metal was possible only thanks to the expertise Alessi has acquired through years of experience realizing complex surfaces in steel. Its descriptive, evocative form transforms Liconi into an object to put on display, in addition to its nominal function as a Centrepiece.

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.
