Description

Alessi’s Sottsass grinder is an extraordinarily expressive kitchen tool created by the legendary Italian designer Ettore Sottsass. Shaped like a small totem, the beechwood grinder has a high-quality ceramic mechanism for grinding salt, pepper and other spices. And when not in use, the grinder adds a delightful pop of colour to the kitchen or table setting.

The Alessi Values Collection was launched to celebrate the centennial of the famous Italian design house. The first part of the collection is called Industrial Craftsmanship, which refers to something between mass-produced and artisan-made. The new, colourful Sottsass editions are based on the wooden objects first introduced in Alessi’s Twergi collection in 1989. All the objects are made in Italy using FSC-certified wood and a partly hand-crafted turning process.

Ettore Sottsass

Ettore Sottsass (1917–2007) was an influential Italian designer and architect, who became famous for his colourful, modernist designs and experimental, radical attitude. He was one of the founders of the design group Memphis, and in 1980 he founded his own agency Sottsass Associati, which today has offices in London and Milan. Sottsass designed many products for the Italian design brand Alessi, and his works are included in the Alessi 100 Values Collection, which was launched to celebrate Alessi's centennial.
