Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Alessi | Kitchen utensils

Alessi is an Italian design factory which is renowned worldwide for its stylish products. Alessi is a family run company and was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921. His son Carlo was the first designer of the company and his products have become classics in the field of kitchenware. The company is now run by descendants of Giovanni Alessi but the same high quality and innovativeness still characterize Alessi’s products. 

Alessi has always considered itself more of a research laboratory in the applied arts rather than simply a manufacturer – a trend and lifestyle leader. Alessi does not employ in-house designers and prefers to work with independent and external talents who remain free from corporate influence. Today Alessi is considered the worldwide leader in tableware, kitchen and home design products. Many Alessi designs are present in the permanent exhibitions of the world’s most famous museums.

In 2021, to celebrate its centennial anniversary, Alessi launched the Alessi 100 Values Collection.

This brand has collaborated with: Eero Aarnio, Marcel Wanders, Stefano Giovannoni, Jasper Morrison, BIG-GAME, Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola, Michele De Lucchi, Ufficio Tecnico Alessi, Michael Graves, Richard Sapper, Alessandro Mendini, Giulio Iacchetti, Frédéric Gooris, Anna & Gian Franco Gasparini, Campana Brothers, Guido Venturini, Mario Trimarchi, Laura Polinoro, Paolo Gerosa, William Alsop, Federico Grazzini, Ettore Sottsass, Achille Castiglioni, David Chipperfield, Carlo Mazzeri, Anselmo Vitale, Luigi Massoni, Valerio Sommella, Jim Hannon-Tan, Michel Boucquillon, Massimo Giacon, Marcello Jori, Aldo Rossi

Online store for high-quality kitchen utensils & cooking utensils

There’s no kitchen without kitchen utensils: you need a whole array of cooking utensils for preparing, cooking and storing food. But luckily, by investing in a set of good-quality kitchen utensils, you can reduce the need of buying new ones every now and then. When talking about kitchen utensils, quality usually means simplicity. The most durable utensils are often those simple pieces made from just one or two materials and designed to overcome changing trends. In our online store, we have focused on a few basic principles: the best kitchen utensils should be well-made, functional, aesthetic and timeless at the same time.

Kitchen utensils inspired by Scandinavian design

The amount of cooking utensils needed in the kitchen greatly varies depending on your level of cooking enthusiasm. A minimalist home chef can do just fine with just a few spatulas, cutting boards and kitchen vessels, but a decent salt grinder, citrus squeezer and cheese knife definitely make cooking and serving food smoother and more enjoyable. Small kitchen utensils such as wine and bar accessories or mortars and pestles also make great gifts for anyone who enjoys spending time in the kitchen. What's more, well-designed cooking utensils can also add to the kitchen decor and bring joy even when not in use.
