This is a fascinating, highly illustrated look at Alessi, a company whose name is synonomous with twentieth-century design. Alessi was founded in the 1920s but it wasn't until the 1980s and 1990s that the company became famous the world over for their highly individual and popular designs for products that include corkscrews, cutlery, kettles and tea services. The lists of designers - "maestros"--Alessi has employed to create their products reads like a who's who of modern design and includes Achille Castiglione, Phillippe Starck, Richard Sapper, Micahel Graves and Frank Gentry.
