Founded in 1921 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.
Alessi’s mission is now one of translating its quest for the most advanced cultural, aesthetic, design and functional quality into mass production. Designer products are the result of the constant reconciliation of art and industry, of the “Immensity of Creative Potential” and the needs of the market. The company is committed to a design approach in which the most advanced expression of international creativity is always balanced against the desires of the general public. Alessi has been described as a “Dream Factory”, which uses its products to make people’s dreams come true, providing them with the Art and Poetry that they seek.
Designed by Michele De Lucchi, this is a range inspired by the plissé that come from the fashions of the 1950s and 1960s when pleated skirts created stunning effects of floaty and frothy fabrics, but the plissé is still contemporary. Pleats give volume to dresses, conveying a sense of lightness and happiness. In a word, the Plissé is a highly iconic form that we have taken for its cheerful and festive spirit.
The Plisse toaster is an object with an elegant design: the colours chosen by the author and the pleated surface offer ample reason why it is a real eye-catcher on any kitchen work surface. It contains three buttons to Stop/Eject, Defrost & Bagel. 6 browning levels.
The outer shell is made from thermoplastic resin while the internal parts are made from stainless steel.
