With designs in shops all over the world you would be forgiven for thinking that Alessi sprang up out of the 80’s designer boom. In fact Alessi is an Italian family company founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921. Eldest son Carlo joined him in the mid 1930’s and began designing the majority of their output until 1945 including the ‘Bombe Coffee series’- manufactured to this day. Carlo was also responsible for the expansion of Alessi through the 1950’s and 1960’s as well as using outside designers.

AlessiThe 1970s proved a turning point for Alessi with the arrival of grandson Alberto Alessi, he set the template for their relationships with some of the worlds most important designers.

AlessiAlberto’s flair for nurturing working relationships with well-respected designers grew in the 1970’s and blossomed in the 1980’s. He was not afraid to ask an architect to design a kitchen utensil, or an industrial designer to develop a series of flower vases. This cross-pollination of designers from different disciplines has produced a huge back catalogue of Alessi products many of which are present in important museum collections.
