Design Ettore Sottsass, 1980's
Lime wood
Made by Alessi

"Almost all objects that I design have a base, they do not touch the ground directly. As soon as you put a shape on a base, the shape becomes immediately important, firmer: it becomes a small monument." -Ettore Sottsass

With its majestic design, this centerpiece is produced in lime wood and resembles a small monument destined to compose an unexpected domestic landscape. It is one of the most significant pieces designed by Ettore Sottsass for Alessi. The large bowl can hold fruit, chocolates and sweets, dried flowers and other decorative items depending on your needs. The function is simple, the effect extremely powerful: it is a fascinating art object made to be admired but also practical to use.

Part of the Alessi 100 year anniversary values collection. Offered with either an orange or yellow colored foot.

5.5" h | 11.75" dia.

Ettore Sottsass

Ettore Sottsass came together with other young designers and architects to form the Memphis Group, and were hailed as innovators of Post-modernism in design and the arts. He inspired generations of architects and designers.
Alessi was founded in 1921 to produce crafted metal accessories for the kitchen. Alberto Alessi launched Alessi into high design through collaborations with designers like Philippe Starck and his Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
