“Alessi 100 Values ​​Collection” celebrates 100 years of research in the field of applied arts and the beginning of a new century of experimentation... Alessi or “industrial craftsmanship”... Alessi is halfway between a series production unit and a craftsman's workshop. All operations there are carried out using machines, but machines used in a spirit of craftsmanship, rather than conditioned by the logic of an assembly line. In this way, they comply with all the designer’s expressive requirements. The Twergi collection was born in 1989 from a desire to revitalise the tradition of wood-turning, an iconic source of know-how of the region where Alessi is based. Fascinated by the simplicity of the wood lathe, an ancestral artisanal machine, Ettore Sottsass, Andrea Branzi and many young designers of that time were inspired to design creations that are reissued today. Alessi is reissuing some of Ettore Sottsass’s finest creations from the Twergi collection. New chromatic combinations are now added to the original colours. A masterful play of coloured volumes which gives rise to a tool perfectly suited to its function: the corkscrew according to Ettore Sottsass is, like all his other creations for Alessi, both effective and captivating. It’s made in Italy using a partly manual turning process, from FSC-certified solid beech. The volumes designed by Sottsass compose an ergonomic shape with a comfortable grip. Fascinating, with its incisive, assertive design, it’s a small, expressive work of art, a household totem that will capture your guests’ attention. Ettore Sottsass (1917-2007) is recognised worldwide as one of the great innovators of design and architecture of the second half of the 20th century. An influential master whose creations are exhibited in the greatest museums of design and contemporary art, he received numerous prizes and awards during his long career.
