New designs added to Chipperfield's tableware for Alessi
It seems that product design is slowly becoming as important a profession for David Chipperfield as architecture. Even if currently it means the expansion of his already existing lines, he is subtly demonstrating his continuous presence on the design field as well. His tableware collection for home accessories giant Alessi was released in 2009, and now, some 6 years later, Chipperfield came up with some new additions to the line.
The exquisitely minimal Tonale set roots back to two aesthetic sources. Its colour palette takes a reference to Italian painter Giorgio Morandi’s serene still lifes. The novecento artist’s muted palette was reinterpreted in a series of pale red and grey plates and cups. Shape-wise, Tonale was inspired by ancient Korean stoneware that carries an air of calmness and functional simplicity.
The new pieces continue the same design language: besides the already existing bowls, cups, and beakers, Chipperfield designed a vase and a serving plate. The vase is available in two sizes, both featuring a tapered shape, and a characteristic ‘lip’ feature around the circular rims, making the piece resemble chimney pots. The rectangular serving plates have smaller bases for easy stacking, and raised edges that keep the contents safe. The new objects, along with the old collection, are available in and updated, spring-like colour palette featuring pastel blue and green hues. Fans of Chipperfield and Alessi can grab the designs after their debut tomorrow at Maison & Objet.
