Alessi Dressed Placemat by Marcel Wanders. Placemat in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished with relief decoration.
- The table set Dressed was designed by Marcel Wanders. Traditionally, the rules would require that decoration be applied in the most important and most visible areas of the object. Wanders, on the other hand, applies it to secluded areas, a little out of sight, sometimes even in areas that aren’t normally visible at all, so much so that we could call it a sort of introverted decoration.
- In this way, even though he uses a language of signs that is very rich and complex, a bit flowery, a little baroque, Wanders manages to maintain a certain level of overall elegance and lightness.
- The Dressed series is complete in every aspect of a typical place setting and is composed of Plates and Bowls, Cutlery, Glasses, Placemat, a Tray, and Glass and Bottle Coasters.
- Made of 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished with relief decoration.
