mediterraneo fruit bowl

Design Emma Silvestris, 2005
Mirror polished or steel with epoxy resin
Made by Alessi

An imaginative form, the Mediterraneo fruit bowl is like something from the submarine world. Transferring the weightlessness of its inhabitants into cut and molded metal. This fruit holder is produced by a process of drawing and perforating by laser cutting. The polished finish is obtained through an electrochemical process. Available in three sizes with you choice of either epoxy colors or mirror polished.

An eclectic and versatile designer, Emma Silvestris combines soft, feminine lines, the precision and elegance of geometry and the use off ancient symbols in her projects.

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 Bombe, 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.
