Spoon for Tea Bag Tèo
In addition to its normal function, “Tèo”, designed by Karin Santorso (Studio LUCY.D), makes it possible, once the tea is ready, to remove the bag from the cup and gently squeeze it, pulling it up through the hollow handle.
Designstudio LUCY.D Wien DESIGN & INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE What links all LUCY.D' s projects is a clear, formal language. We design items to last, and we place great value on the sustainable use of materials and well thought- out solutions. When developing projects for interiors, it's necessary to find the optimum balance between functional paths, a new sub-division of the spaces and their suggestive use.
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 leading “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.
