Description

Notice to collectors! To mark the centenary of the birth of Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002), Alessi pays homage to this legendary designer by offering a special, brand-new edition of his Bravero cup. The rim of the saucer is decorated with copper edging. A stand-out figure in Italian design, Achille Castiglioni designed the Bravero service for Alessi in 1997. We can clearly distinguish what Castiglioni himself liked to define as “the main element of the project”, namely the central idea of a project: in this case, the idea of bending down the edge of the saucers and the ring that serves as a handle. This set consists of two mocha cups along with two matching saucers with copper rims. Achille Castiglioni continued to lead the way in a manner both mischievous and detached. His philosophy on the subject is based around the idea, the pleasure of discovery and invention, rather than form as finality. For Castiglioni, the items had to meet two basic requirements : to provide a practical solution, if possible with a smart, functional innovation to satisfy the public’s tastes.
