Alessi is More
I know, I know, been there done that, old classic lalalala but when you get it right it’s hard to deny, like most things labeled classic, the Alessi Tea Kettle and all things of this deisgn house are not one note. They’re like a symphony, not a car alarm. Each time you look at the work a different image comes to mind, chrome, modernist, birds in the countryside, morning coffee, afternoon tea, primary colors, children’s toys, Italian Alps. Myself and the Philadelphia Museum of Art agree, considering their new exhibition Alessi: Ethical and Radical which opens Nov. 21st, take another look, you’ll come to a new conclusion or find new inspiration.
