Ottagonale Tea Pot
On a personal level, the Ottagonale objects are part of my childhood memories, ; says Alberto Alessi. I always saw them used in my parents' home. On a professional level, their ‘normalcy' has always struck me. They were examples of an era of the consumer society which was destined to disappear quickly: a time I'd call pre-design, prior to the phenomenon of designer goods in all of our homes. ; And yet, the Ottagonale Tea Pot, designed by Alberto's father Carlo, endures: With its strong, clean lines, it's much more than just a vessel for tea.
