He began working for Alessi in 1980 and went on to create a number of unforgettable designs. 2018 is the centenary of the birth of this great designer and Alessi is celebrating with a special edition of his “Dry” cutlery which was first presented in 1982 and went on to win the Compasso d’Oro design award.VIEW THE COMPLETE RANGE
