Design David Chipperfield, 2009
Stoneware
Made by Alessi

A seemingly random collection of objects, the table service comprises a number of items including a tray, a board, a carafe, plates, bowls, beakers, and cups. The project, designed by david Chipperfield, was inspired by vernacular ceramics from Korea, Japan, and China, and conceived as an exercise in refining functional household objects. The name "Tonale" refers to Giorgio Morandi's use of color tonality imbuing his daily objects with a sense of individuality. The objects are produced in a variety of materials including enameled steel, glass, earthenware, and wood. While striving for expressive purity, the range honors today's requirements for durability and versatility.

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.
