Alessi Serie 40 5 Piece Place Setting flatware
Serie 40 5 piece place settings. Includes: dinner knife, dinner spoon, dinner fork, dessert fork and tea spoon. 18-10 stainless steel with dark blue and almost black high strength plastic handle. This cutlery set was one of the first objects designed during the late 1930s by three young architects who became leading exponents of what is known as “Lombardy classicism” in the field of design and architecture. It was presented to the public for the first time at the 7th Milan Triennale (1940), as part of a metal and glass exhibition. This series reflects the formal and industrial renewal of home ware, characterized at that time by the gradual introduction of new production techniques such as molding and die casting, and the use of new materials such as steel.
