Design Daniel Libeskind, 2017
Mirror polished 18/10 stainless steel, epoxy resin
Made in Italy by Alessi

A micro-architecture designed by Daniel Libeskind, a direct tribute to his friend Aldo Rossi, Milanese architect and keen enthusiast of the dialectic rapport between urban planning and domestic landscape. Water Tower is a container that draws its inspiration from typical water tanks that populate the roofs of the New York skyline. The concentric rings along the body of the container, the pointed lid and the articulated base structure reproduce in minute detail the large tanks which distinguish the landscape of the American city. A sophisticated and complex object, ensuing from the manufacturing skills acquired by the engineers at the factory in Crusinallo, Omegna.

Water tower is offered with a mirror polished 18/10 stainlesss steel container with either a silver or black epoxy resin steel base.

4.75" dia. | 10.75" h | 25.75 oz.

$215.00 + free shipping in the continental U.S.

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.

Adds a touch of whimsy to kitchen counter

I bought this for no other reason than that it's unique and looks great. It's also very well made. The top is removable so that items can be stored inside the body, and both sit on the separate supporting structure. It adds some fun to my kitchen!
