Alessi Tray / Centrepiece in Steel coloured with White Epoxy resin.
The Alessi ‘Le Cerchie’ is a round tray / centrepiece that encapsulates the minimalist style of the Italian architect.
The Alessi ‘Le Cerchie’ Tray / Centrepiece has a 3-step edge which is the distinctive feature of the project. It has an architectural design which, as the name suggests (‘cerchie’ is Italian for circles), is reminiscent of a square surrounded by a staircase.
Le Cerchie brings to mind a kind of classical amphitheatre whose actors are the objects placed at the centre of the tray.
Suitable as a Serving Tray or Generous Centrepiece
The white finishing absorbs the light, developing shadows that highlight the surrounding steps. The large dimensions of Le cerchie make it suitable for use as a serving tray or a generous centrepiece.
- Diameter – 48 cm
