Designer: Richard Sapper
From mundane item to work of art
Richard Sapper - one of the designers who has been with Alessi the longest and the creator of some of our most innovative objects - in his own home is in charge grating cheese for the whole family. Thus his inspiration was based on extensive personal experience on this theme and this time around he has come up with a novelty that will be the joy of consumers of grated cheese.
“Todo” has a truncated cone shaft that is exceptionally long and will grate enough cheese to satisfy the requirements for one portion just with one complete stroke. An excellent example of an object to exhibit on the table or in the kitchen, but at the same time it boasts a precise, state-of-the-art functional performance that just about transforms into playful gestural expressiveness one of the most boring and least qualifying culinary operations.
Made in steel and wood.
Dimensions: L 10cm W 10cm H 46cm
“A true design work must move people, convey emotions, bring back memories, surprise, and go against common thinking.”
The Dream Factory
Since its establishment in 1921, Alessi has gradually evolved, becoming a leading exponent of the “Factories of Italian design”, capable of mediating between the most interesting expressions of international creativity and the public, society and the market. Its mission is to translate these creative expressions into real objects capable of fulfilling dreams and satisfying the public’s desires.
Art & Poetry
Alessi’s commitment is to translate the search for the most advanced cultural, aesthetic, executive and functional quality into industrial mass production. It has been called a “Factory of dreams” and its aim is to respond, with its products, to the need for happiness, for Art and Poetry, a need shared by the whole of mankind.
Making the ordinary extraordinary. Creating everyday objects that are interesting and desirable, where aesthetics, functionality and quality find their balance in a cultural and emotional dimension that charms and surprises.
Alessi is part of a global movement of companies that, going beyond the goal of profit, see business as a tool to positively influence the community. B Corps are companies convinced that their final aim is more than mere profit. They work to maximise their positive impact on their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment, using business as a regenerating force for society and for the well-being of the planet. Alessi sees being a B Corp as a way of translating its long-standing way of “doing business” into a formal and recognisable certification.
Since 1921, the year in which the firm was established, most Alessi objects have been created via cold processing of the metals and, even today, are still made in Italy by highly skilled craftsmen at the factory in Crusinallo, Omegna. In recent decades, Alessi has also included many other materials in its catalogue, such as wood, porcelain, glass, plastic, etc. Strict quality standards are applied to each of them, with constant mediation between the technological complexity of industrial production and the attention to details typical of craftsmanship.
