The tactility of Marcel Wanders
dressed by marcel wanders is tactile and beautiful
With the new dressed collection of tableware from Alessi you see it, you love it, quirk, vintage yet modern, absurd yet totally practical. The amazing new ‘dressed’ collection of tableware by Marcel Wanders for Alessi is beguiling rather than striking and subtle yet charming. The range covers crockery and cutlery through to serving dishes and serving utensils. The muted off-white colour in keeping with Wanders’ Dutch simplicity philosophy shows the organic, almost worn looking art nouveau style pattern, the raised texture of the pattern is tactille beyond belief. A simple espresso cup with a handle that has a perfect circle sits on a saucer with full patternation, the cup is simple glossy and unassuming until it is in your hand and you feel the pattern on the underside of the cup. A nod perhaps to the traditional Japanese practice of showing your company the most beautiful side of your cup, as the Japanese do in tea ceremonies. A dinner service to wow, enthral and enchant your guests at your next dinner party? oh yes! we like to flash our Alessi especially when its deserving of such touch and tactililty.
