Alessi | Design Wooden Pepper Mill - Red
Ettore Sottsass and Alessi
Designer: Ettore Sottsass
Mini-architecture for the table, the 5070 series design has been in service for thirty years and is a testament to the inspiration of Sottsass who with a few simple lines can exalt the archetypical look and materiality of an object as common as a condiment set.
Born in Innsbruck in 1917, he is known the world over as one of the initiators of the revolution in architecture and design which led away from the rigid functionalism of the years prior to and following the Second World War. A great and influential Maestro of Italian design, the energy of his language and the vitality of his colour and line contrast sharply with any intellectualism and rigidity. He dies in December 2007.
