Alessi Barkroll Kitchen Roll Holder
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 “Barkroll” kitchen roll dispenser is made using a manufacturing process whereby the steel sheet is cut and laser perforated, and subsequently shaped with a series of mechanical processes, and lastly welded. The object consists of a smooth base, a central element on which the roll is placed and a perforated external structure which contains it and facilitates tearing operations.
