Peneira: simplicity of materials and inventive design ability. Peneira collection is a new collection of baskets designed by the Campana brothers for Alessi. A hallmark throughout the Brazilian duo's work, these products are made of simple, basic materials that attain their level of sophistication by skillfully and cleverly combining them. The malleability of the metal mesh used for the layers gives the product a blurry, out-of-focus transparency, while the tailored, natural fiber trimming used to finish the piece's rim softens the final product. With this project, the Campanas have successfully transformed the mechanical strength of steel mesh into a series of very delicate and impalpable baskets : "We called this collection Peneira: a word meaning sieve in Portuguese, used by Brazilian Indians. The translation from the handmade prototype to the industrial process maintains the original spirit of our creations and demonstrates once again how the refined craftsmanship in our design perfectly combines with the technical know-how of Alessi's production."
