Why We Chose This
This Plissé appliance is produced by Alessi, an Italian company founded in 1921. The brand is famous for their everyday objects that strike a balance between aesthetics and function. Throughout the years, they have collaborated with international designers, such as Michael Graves, Alberto Meda, Achille Castiglioni and Ettore Sottsass. Two Alessi designs are represented in MoMA's collection: David Chipperfield's Piana Chair from 2010, and Philippe Starck's Ceci N'est Pas une Truelle Cake Server from 1996.
