Alessi Recinto Rectangular Tray in Mirror-polished Stainless Steel
Mirror-polished Stainless Steel
The Alessi Recinto Rectangular tray has a scalloped edge and handles in 18/10 stainless steel, mirror polished.
Hallmark Scalloped Edge
The scalloped edge is the hallmark of one of Mendini’s designs from the Alchimia period in the early 1980s, which was then made by craftsmen and then only in a few dozen examples.
Form and Function
Since 1997 this design has been produced by Alessi in trays and baskets, with a harmonious combination of form and function: the cut handles ensure a firm, safe hold.
Collection – Alessi
Dimensions – 45 x 30 cm
Designed by Alessandro Mendini
Alessandro was born in Milan in 1931 and graduated in 1959. He was an architect, artist, designer and design manager, theorist and journalist and began his profession at the Nizzoli studio. He was the main force behind the renovation of Italian design in the ’80s. Among his most significant works during this period were the Groningen Museum and the reinvention of the Alessi image for whom he is meta-projectual consultant. The key element is always a clever hybrid between art and design resulting in popular objects that achieve great commercial success. He died on 18 February 2019.
