We love the geometric form of this polished steel bowl by world famous Italian design company Alessi. Designed in 1977 by Giulio Confalonieri it references an `Art Deco` sensibility  whilst retaining a harder edged futuristic style that was prevalent in much of Italian design during the mid to late 1970`s.

As a design company Alessi are considered one of the most respected in Italy. The designers who have created for them are some of the most influential within the design world right up to present day. Notable designers have included Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Michael Graves, Achille Castiglioni, Philippe Starck, Frank Gehry, Jasper Morrison, Richard Sapper, Zaha Hadid and of course Carlo Alessi himself.

Alessi was founded in 1921 to produce crafted products in metal for eating and drinking, by Giovanni Alessi and remains even today a privately owned company.
