Why is it Special?

 

Alessi’s Sottsass kitchen jar is an extraordinarily expressive storage jar created by the legendary Italian designer Ettore Sottsass. Shaped like a small totem, the beechwood lid ensures an airtight seal for flour, sugar, pasta or anything you like to store in a glass jar.

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.

For the lids, 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. The glass containers are dishwasher-safe.
