Atypical Type A - Obsess & Inspire: Alessi

It would be remiss of me not to do a feature on Alessi since it’s elicited in me a fair bit of both Obsessing and Inspiring.

Founded in 1921 in Italy, it took until the 1980s to cement its iconic design status after the company began collaborating with talented freelancers such as superstar designer Philippe Starck. Its stylish and playful products are still a feature of kitchens and museums alike.

    ooooooh my favourite!! I am in love with Alessi and am lucky enough to have a partner who indulges my obsession every now and then. I have the fruit bowl (pictured) and also the mini version of the juicer – it is soooo cute!

  • Lucky you! Their red mediterraneo fruit bowl has been on my wish list for years *cough cough* …
