Alessi Tonale Vase in Ceramic Pale Blue*
A seemingly random collection of objects, the table service comprises a number of items including a tray, a board, a carafe, plates, bowls, beakers, and cups.
The project, designed by david Chipperfield, was inspired by vernacular ceramics from Korea, Japan, and China, and conceived as an exercise in refining functional household objects.
The name ""Tonale"" refers to Giorgio Morandi's use of colour tonality imbuing his daily objects with a sense of individuality.
The objects are produced in a variety of materials including enamelled steel, glass, earthenware, and wood.
While striving for expressive purity, the range honours today's requirements for durability and versatility
