「Style Inspiration」 A perfect postmodern stainless steel sugar bowl and creamer set! Designed by architect Michael Graves in 1988, this creamer & sugar set is part of a group of products designed in the 80's and 90's by the architect. This was the first group of products by an American designer to be included in the Alessi catalog. It opened the way for the playful design style that subsequently characterized the 90's, and thanks to an inspired mix of post-modern and pop idioms, has become one of the internationally recognized icons of the 80's.
「History」 Founded in 1921 as a Workshop for the processing of brass and nickel silver sheet metal, with foundry, Alessi has always stood out for the high quality of its products.
