Designed by Michael Boucquillon and Donia Maaoui, the “Bark” collection was inaugurated in 2015 with the namesake centrepiece. The designers drew their inspiration from their home, Casa Boucquillon: it is a place for experimentation, meditation and work where they can live in synch with nature.
The perforated pattern of the “Bark” range recalls the bark on the trees that surround the house. The result is a strongly poetic collection where every individual object proves to be, either in shape or in function, in continuous and harmonious dialogue with nature.
Characteristics / Suggested use. Produced at the factory in Crusinallo, Omegna, the bottle rack in the “Bark” range demonstrates, like the other objects in this collection, Alessi’s skill in processing steel. Through subsequent processing stages, the metal sheet is cut, laser perforated, bent and lastly welded, so as to obtain the organic and sinuous shape drawn by the designers.
