Alba Truffle Slicer

alba truffle slicer

alba truffle slicer

Design Ben van Berkel & UNStudio, 2017
18/10 mirror polished stainless steel
Made by Alessi

Alba is the most appropriate tool to serve, taste and celebrate together truffles: a mysterious and delicious product of the Piedmontese lands.

The design of the Alba truffle slicer, created by Ben Van Berkel/UN Studio, draws inspiration from the twine created between the precious tuberous fungus and the root of the plant with which it lives in symbiosis. An absolutely new form for a traditional instrument. A sculptural and sophisticated object, it is yet at the same time functional and ergonomic. Made of stainless steel 18/10, the truffle slicer is created from the collaboration with the National Center of truffle studies, the International Fair of Alba truffles. The name of the object is a homage to the homonymous city.

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.
