Design Piero Lissoni, 2017
PMMA & 18/10 mirror polished stainless steel
Made by Alessi

Designed by Piero Lissoni, Birillo is part of the family of objects for the bathroom. The balance between the minimal shape and the used materials is the main characteristic of this project. The entire range of product is minimal and essential thanks to its rectangular shape and very well finished with it's rounded edges. The objects are simple but never dull. True to the minimalist style that characterizes all his work, Piero Lissoni has designed this line of bath products, starting from a classical form. Offered in two heights.

birillo tall dispenser: 3.25" w | 2.5" d | 6.5" h | 7 oz.
birillo short dispenser: 4.5" w | 3.75" d | 5.25" h | 10.5 oz.

Piero Lissoni

Piero Lissoni (b. 1956) of Seregno, Italy originally studied architecture in Milan, but first worked as a designer for Molteni and Lema, and later as art director and designer for a well-known food manufacturer. In 1986 he founded his own studio with Nico Canesi that still employs many architects, designers and product designers. The company’s second office, called "Graph.x" opened in 1996. Lissoni is well known for designing the internal architecture of hotels, such as the Monaco & Grand Canal in Venice , and the Bentley design hotel in Istanbul. As a graphic designer, Lissoni designed the corporate identity of the fashion designer Elie Taharie. As a product designer, his leg chair "S44" is very well known.
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.

Beautiful and solves the usual dispenser problems
Michael, more than a month ago.
After trying out various dispensers over the years, always with an eye towards aesthetics, they all had faults that I believe are vanquished with this design. Either the manner in which the soap dispenses was flawed (horizontal or requiring an odd operation which made the dispenser slip or topple) or keeping them clean an issue, often where the top screws onto the base collecting soap residue and stainless or other materials becoming impossible to clean to the original luster. Or they had all of these problems! Well we decided to try both sizes of the Birillo (in PMMA, not Stainless, I should add) and we couldn't be happier! Both sizes, after weeks of use, appear to solve all the aforementioned problems and are fantastic visually! I highly recommend!

(Note: I am reviewing the PMMA version)

Very pleased. A bit of a wait to arrive, but that's the price when you're not okay with anything designed here in the states. Happy to have this on display (using next to kitchen sink, for dish soap).
