Hors-d'oeuvre Set Babyboop
Babyboop is the first design Ron has made for Alessi in steel. It's a set of three small containers for nibbles, shaped to reflect the large blow-molded aluminium furniture/sculptures he made in a limited run in the late nineties.
Ron was born in Tel Aviv in 1951, he studied at the Jerusalem Academy of Art and at the Architectural Association of London where Bernard Tschumi was his teacher and Nigel Coates and Zaha Hadid his colleagues. He lives and works in London where he teaches at The Royal College of Art. Putting architecture to one side for a while, although he has in fact recently returned to that discipline, Ron turned his attention to design and began working with several Italian companies. He has created some world-famed pieces and is a true virtuoso as can been seen in works like his performance: Ron is always searching for new unconventional solutions for common objects and experimenting with new technologies and materials in innovative forms.
Founded in 1921 as a “Workshop for the processing of brass and nickel silver sheet metal, with foundry”, Alessi has always stood out for the high quality of its products. In almost a century of history, the company has gradually evolved to become one of the “Factories of Italian design”, capable of applying its expertise and excellence in design management to many different product types. Open to change and international development, Alessi at the same time has a strong bond with the traditions and cultural background of its area and continues to be synonymous with handcrafted objects produced with the help of machines.
Alessigraphy: the geography of Alessi production
Since the Company's Foundation in 1921 the Majority of Alessi Products have Been Manufactured through the Cold Working of Metals, a Tradition that is Kept Alive Today by the Skilled Workers at the Crusinallo Plant in Omegna.
Over time, Alessi also began to work with many other materials, such as porcelain, glass, wood, and plastic. A specific production method was developed for each one. Even when production takes place outside the Crusinallo plant, Alessi’s guidelines ensure the company’s original production quality standards, continuing to reconcile industrial technological complexity with an artisanal eye for detail.
The objects produced from the different materials are manufactured in various production plants across the world. They remain original Alessi objects in that they are conceived with the same design excellence and produced with the same attention to quality that sets the company’s products apart.
