    Alessi - Kiwi Watering Can
    The watering can Kiwi, produced by Alessi, was created by the designers Donato D’ Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi, being pioneers of the Pop-Design of the 60s from then on. The two designers considered their work a big challenge, since it didn’t seem easy to create a daily-use object like a watering can, fulfilling design demands: "With Kiwi we had the possibility of entering a product category, which is normally constrained on a moderate design. Regarding this, our challenge was simple, but the process was neither short nor lineal." Explained D’Urbino and Lomazzi. But the design-solution can still be exhibited and the design is totally thought and clever: Shaped like a horizontal cone, the handle is hidden under of the pouring hole, so that the cane can also be filled on lower water taps. The designer watering can has a long basin in order to be used with vases as well. Kiwi has a capacity of two litres of water and it is available in four nice colours.

    A di Alessi - Pastorello and Pecorello Christmas bauble Set
    The mouth-blown glass and hand-decorated Pastorello and Pecorello Christmas Baubles are part of the Presepe-collection (Italian: Christmas Bauble Crib) by A di Alessi. There it represents one of the classic crib figures, which display the nativity play directly at the Christmas tree. "Pastorello" is Italian and means "shepherd", "Pecorello" is the Italian word for "sheep". The Christian symbolic is taken up caringly and conspicuously and brought to life through two sympathetic Christmas baubles. The tradition of the decorated Christmas tree with large and small coloured baubles out of blown glass dates back to the middle of the 19th century, when a dry period stole the green needles of the pine trees. A glass smithy out of Goetzenbruck had the idea of blowing objects out of glass in order to ornament the tree, hiding the sad looking pine branches. The round shape was the fastest to produce and that is how many colourful Christmas tree baubles emerged, soon becoming a tradition in the most different countries and cultures. Only in 1964, the glass factory in Goetzenbruck stopped the industrial production of the Christmas baubles. The shape of the traditionally made Christmas decoration changed along the years, whereby additional small decors or typical motives covered the Christmas baubles, such as Father Christmas, bells, stars and a sledge. It was Marcello Jori who created the 'Palle Presepe” with his creative soul and irony, causing a small revolution at Alessi with it. He said that there was a Christmas tree at his home every year, but that he envied those who had a crib with vivid figures. Marcello Jori: ”I finally dreamt sometime of an angel, who hung up some foreign baubles at the Christmas tree, the baubles spoke, sang and prayed. Some were sacred, stars or animals and one of them, lighting more than the others, was the Infant Jesus.” Jori’s dream came true. Those mouth-blown glass and hand decorated baubles exist now. The 'Palle Presepe” are the classic crib figures that create a completely new Christmas tree with fantasy and some irony: Maria and Josef with Jesus, ox and donkey, angel, star and the three wise men.

    A di Alessi - Angioletto Christmas Bauble
    The mouth blown glass made, hand decorated Angel Christmas Bauble is part of the Presepe-collection (Italian: Christmas Bauble Crib) by A di Alessi. There it represents one of the classic crib figures, which display the nativity play directly at the Christmas tree. The tradition of the decorated Christmas tree with large and small coloured baubles out of blown glass dates back to the middle of the 19th century, when a dry period stole the green needles of the pine trees. A glass smithy out of Goetzenbruck had the idea of blowing objects out of glass in order to ornament the tree, hiding the sad looking pine branches. The round shape was the fastest to produce and that is how many colourful Christmas tree baubles emerged, soon becoming a tradition in the most different countries and cultures. Only in 1964, the glass factory in Goetzenbruck stopped the industrial production of the Christmas baubles. The shape of the traditionally made Christmas decoration changed along the years, whereby additional small decors or typical motives covered the Christmas baubles, such as Father Christmas, bells, stars and a sledge. It was Marcello Jori who created the 'Palle Presepe” with his creative soul and irony, causing a small revolution at Alessi with it. He said that there was a Christmas tree at his home every year, but that he envied those who had a crib with vivid figures. Marcello Jori: ”I finally dreamt sometime of an angel, who hanged some foreign baubles at the Christmas tree, the baubles spoke, sang and prayed. Some were holy, stars or animals and one of them, lighting more than others, was Christ.” Jori’s dream became true. Those, mouth blown glass made, hand decorated baubles exist now. The 'Palle Presepe” are the classic crib figures that create a completely new Christmas tree with fantasy and some irony: Maria and Josef with Jesus, ox and donkey, angel, star and the three wise men.

    Alessi - Mami Fondue-Set
    Fondue sets are on another planet in the complex universe of kitchen utensils. There are lots of types of fondue, quite different from each other and rooted in quite different culinary cultures. All fondues share the same cooking method (which varies from simmering to slow frying or melting) that is achieved with a casserole or a pot placed over a heat source that is taken directly to the table. On the basis of these differing needs, our aim in the project of the 'Mami” fondue set was to create a truly complete system of objects for all aspects of this type of cooking. In fact, the small tray base and stand with diffuser plate complete with burner (which operates both with paste and with alcohol) may be combined with the classic, long-handled steel casserole, with heat-diffusing base (which functions on all types of heat sources, including induction plates), typical of the Bourguignonne fondue, as well as the traditional stove-top ceramic casserole, ideal for cheese and for chocolate fondues. There are also two types of fork: Those with two beak-headed prongs (for meat) and those with three prongs, with widened palms (for cheeses, chocolate and whatever else needs to be put together each time, even for just a part of the sauce). The system is completed by a 'Lazy Susan”, a huge, wood revolving container for the complete set, with small stainless steel and ceramic sauce bowls. Pietro Leemann, chef of the Joia restaurant, has made his expertise and passion for natural cuisine available to us, and prepared several recipes that enrich the pleasure of healthy eating through the perfect application of cooking techniques.
