Alessi Circus, Available at William Ashley
Dutch master designer, Marcel Wanders, has partnered with Alessi to create the Alessi Circus, a celebration of the fantasy and whimsy of the circus. Wanders designs architectural, interior and industrial projects and became internationally renowned for his Knotted Chair.
With a name synonymous with excellence in stainless steel kitchenware, the Alessi Circus collection merges colour and stainless steel in playful, unexpected ways. The challenge of creating the collection, which was a five year undertaking, was to combine functionality with the over-the-top pageantry of the circus.
The collection features a colourful range of tableware items including placemats, bowls, serving trays, ice buckets, bottle stands, wine chillers, and mugs. Using bold, geometric patterns, and colours such as white, black, yellow, red and gold, each piece evokes historical symbols from the circus, creating an experience of wonder and amusement.
We’re pleased to welcome William Ashley back for IDS17, where they will be showcasing the Alessi Circus collection.
