Alberto Alessi debuts design book
Jan 26, 2017

The new design book The Dream Factory: Alessi Since 1921, shares a glimpse of Alessi’s history; the company, which was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi, is now in what it calls its third transformation, with Alberto Alessi, president—and author of the book—at the helm.


Published by Rizzoli, the tome collects the work of a range of Alessi’s collaborators, including international designers and architects Ettore Sottsass, Achille Castiglioni, Richard Sapper, Alessandro Mendini, Aldo Rossi, Michael Graves, Philippe Starck, David Chipperfield and Marcel Wanders.

Of the brand’s impact and its products, says author Alessi, “There are objects that are part of our everyday existence: things that we use without even looking at them, part of a neutral, reassuring domestic scenario. And there are others—those that make our daily routines simpler, more pleasurable, more ours.”
