The Alessi Company was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921 at Omegna, a village on Lake Orta in northern Italy.
Design first appeared at the end of 30s with Giovanni's eldest son, Carlo who designed the 'Bombé' tea and coffee service. This became one of the first archetypes of Italian design. In 1970 Carlo's eldest son, Alberto, joined the company as head of design management, followed by his two other brothers, Michele and Alessio and cousin, Stefano. Thanks to their fresh creativity, Alessi has developed that design excellence which has made it one of the leading international Italian Design Factories.
One of Alessi’s special features is its ability to reconcile typically industrial needs with a tendency to work as a 'research laboratory in the field of the applied arts'. This is what inspires Alessi's tireless research and experimentation which progressively has led it to use new materials and new technologies and to collaborate with over two hundred designers such as: Ettore Sottsass, Richard Sapper, Achille Castiglioni, Alessandro Mendini, Aldo Rossi, Michael Graves, Philippe Starck, Stefano Giovannoni, Jasper Morrison, Marc Newson, Ron Arad, the Campana Brothers, David Chipperfield, Marcel Wanders...
The kitchen has been for many years the object of some of the most compelling projects for Alessi: by adding emotion and poetry to the recipe, they have transformed this part of the house in a welcoming theater of experimentation and fun. For the development of these projects, Alessi consults and partners with some of the most acclaimed professionals in the gourmet world: famous chefs – from Alain Chapel to Gualtiero Marchesi, from Roger Vergé to Pierre and Michel Troisgros, from Alain Ducasse to Pierre Hermé – , experienced gastromists – Alberto Gozzi – , olive oil tasters – Lorenzo Piccione di Pianogrillo – and salt maestros – Fabio Fassone.
The core business (the production of items by metal presswork) is still carried out at the Omegna factory. Exports account for two thirds of the company’s turnover and reach around sixty different countries worldwide.
The millennium has witnessed new developments at Alessi. Collaborations have been formed with other companies in manufacturing contexts very different from small objects for the home and kitchen. The licensed projects in this field include: wristwatches, pens, settings for the bathroom and the kitchen, cordless telephones, folding chairs, LED lighting projects…
In 2010 with the “Oggetti e Progetti. Alessi: storia e futuro di una fabbrica del design italiano” exhibition, Alessi has lent an eye into the future of design. The exhibition opened at the Die Neue Sammlung in Munich and was curated by Alessandro Mendini in collaboration with the Alessi Museum.
Retitled “Alessi: Ethical and Radical”, the exhibition was then hosted at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PAM).
