Alessi Fruit Bowl Pierre Charpin (Diameter 30cm)
Fruit bowl in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished.
basket of 80 mirror-polished rods with unexpected light effects.
The fascinating rhythmic shape created by the closely placed ribs in mirror-polished steel that form the “PCH02” Baskets (1), “PCH04” Tray
(2) and “PCH05” Fruit bowl (3) –presented between 2011 and 2013 –returns in two more articles by Pierre Charpin. “PCH06” (4) is an
Oval basket that now flanks the existing round ones, and “PCH05/30”, a large Fruit bowl measuring 30 cm across (5), which joins the 24 cm
version presented in 2013. Two further versions of these elegant containers, the designer’s contemporary interpretation of the classic eighteenthnineteenth
century “gallery” trays. Produced in stainless steel, these articles look like fences made with a series of vertical elements, topped by a
rim (6) running right around the edge, raised by a few millimetres. Manufacturing details that exude a sensation of rich construction. The vertical
elements are laser-welded separately to the upper rim, enhancing the formality of these sophisticated articles.
