Italian design company Alessi has become an international icon since its humble beginnings in 1921. The brand is renowned across the globe for innovative design, elegant form, and a whimsical interpretation of everyday household items and appliances.

Alessi designs are a wonderful hybrid of aesthetic and functionality; embodying a sense of household presence as well as serving their purpose as an everyday tool. It is precisely the combination of these two features that instil in all Alessi designs a sense of empathy; making them feel like an old family friend.

Ongoing partnerships with the great masters of Italian design and architecture helped catapult Alessi to the top of its game. Its careful choice of projects and unmatched attention to detail are an enlightened reminder to us that inspiration can be found even in the everyday. Add a little Alessi to your life!
