'Italian Design Factory' Alessi are renowned for their design-led contemporary homeware and kitchenware. Created in collaboration with some of the world's leading designers, their products are innovative, quirky and characterful. Many of them are widely regarded as design classics, such as the Alessi kettles.
Alessi are one of the leading and possibly the most famous of the designer homeware brands.
Founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi and now overseen by grandson Alberto Alessi, they describe themselves as an 'Italian Design Factory' whose products are 'handicraft items made with the aid of machines'. Much of the Alessi range is still made in Italy, with skilled workers cold working metal to produce products of exceptional quality.
A design-led brand and leading design house, Alessi are very much focused on excellence in design and over the years a number of Alessi products have become regarded as design classics, with Alessi designs being part of more permanent museum collections than any other design company.
Innovative and experimental, Alessi choose to work with many of the world's leading designers rather than design in-house. The result is the creation of some of the most sought-after homeware and kitchen accessories in the world. Each a unique design, they are instantly recognisable as Alessi products from their style and quirky eccentricity.
Key designs include kitchen accessories such as sought-after Alessi Kettles, Alessi Coffee Makers and Alessi Storage Jars as well as their original and distinctive bread bins, kitchen roll holders and Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer.
Alessi Fruit Bowls are another popular Alessi design, as are other tableware and serveware products including their Big Love Ice Cream Spoons and Salad Server Set.
Alessi kitchen accessories and homeware products are stylish and unusual, sure to add a touch of character and enhance the home. These striking designs are instantly recognisable to those who appreciate the Alessi style and would make great gifts that will be noticed, admired and treasured.
