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.
The Sbriciola Bread board designed by Anna and Gian Franco Gasparini features large lengthwise slits and a little drawer that holds the crumbs falling through the slits. The drawer is separated into two compartments - the smaller one houses the bread knife and is located under the slit-free part so the crumbs don’t get in; the second one is the same size as the slitted area, so it can collect the crumbs that form when you cut the bread. Functional, yet stylish enough for the dining table as well as the kitchen.
