Alessi’s Sottsass centrepiece is an extraordinarily expressive wooden bowl created by the legendary Italian designer Ettore Sottsass. Shaped like a small totem, the monumental limewood centrepiece consists of a painted pedestal and large bowl that can be used for serving fruits, sweets or any kinds of decorative objects.
The Alessi Values Collection was launched to celebrate the centennial of the famous Italian design house. The first part of the collection is called Industrial Craftsmanship, which refers to something between mass-produced and artisan-made. The new, colourful Sottsass editions are based on the wooden objects first introduced in Alessi’s Twergi collection in 1989. All the objects are made in Italy using FSC-certified wood and a partly hand-crafted turning process.
Use a damp cloth or wood cleaner and dry immediately. Do not wash by immersion, underwater or in a dishwasher, and avoid the use of abrasive detergents, which could damage the surface finish of the product.
