Design Jasper Morrison, 2017
Steel, epoxy resin
Made by Alessi

Part of the family of steel objects with a minimalist appeal, for the table service conceived by Jasper Morrison. The Round Basket is available in epoxy resin over steel in black or red with relief decoration or brass with relief decoration. Offered in three sizes.

The Extra Ordinary Metal collection combines Alessi's historic production experience with elements of Italian culture, to explore new possible definitions of metal surface. Brass was chosen to interpret, from an industrial point of view, a refined and ancient goldsmith's technique that is the Etruscan Granulation. Obtained through a cold drawing of the brass, it creates a rich interaction with light, a kind of luminous skin capable of exalting both complex shapes and pure, neutral lines. The 'grain' arrangement follows a geometric sequence generated by the succession of Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician who for first translated the golden logic of classical proportions into numbers. This principle, that regulates the balance of Nature, expresses timeless compositional harmony and becomes the extra-ordinary author of this project.

Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison (b. 1959) is an English product and furniture designer from London. He received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Masters degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly the Hochschule der Künste (HdK). While a student, he gained a keen interest in modernist pioneers, such as Buckminster Fuller, Gerald Summers, Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier. Morrison's objects provide a quiet contrast to the creative exuberance of the Eighties. The visual restraint, high functionalism and constructive simplicity attract attention to his work.
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.
