Alessi Parmenide Grater

alessi parmenide grater

alessi parmenide grater

Design Alejandro Ruiz, 1994
Steel, polyamide
Made by Alessi

Parmenide by Alessi is a cheese grater and cellar.... part of the collection named "Memory Containers". Alessi wanted to underline "how an object becomes a cultural subject" passing it from one culture to another. Parmesan cheese is of course an Italian habit, why not extend it to your table and use it on a beautiful and hot dish of pasta?

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.

Great concept

Great idea. However the grater is not we’ll balanced. It frequently falls over and traditional graters do a better job. But I do like its storage capacity. All in all, I expected more from Alessi.
