Blender and hand blender, toaster and juicer: these are the appliances that, together with the electric kettle already present in the catalogue, define the Plissé collection, designed by Michele De Lucchi for Alessi. Available in red, white, black and grey, the family of appliances takes its inspiration from the vogue in the fifties and sixties for pleated surfaces to create dynamism, elegance and a delightfully frivolous touch. The Plissé line perfectly conveys the spirit underlying the whole Alessi catalogue, which consists of useful objects defined by a perfectly recognizable design idea and aesthetic research, so that they are perceived as veritable domestic sculptures: contemporary ‘signs’ that can be used in everyday life and even – why not? be displayed in full view in the home.
