The Dressed series of pasta set is ideal for cooking any kind of pasta. Made of stainless steel 18/10, it is composed of a two-handed pot, a practical perforated basket and a lid. On the handles and the lid, there is the relief decoration created by Marcel Wanders for the Dressed series. A slight splay of the superior aspect of the pot and the basket facilitates food dispensing operations. The magnetic steel bottom allows the pasta set to be used on any heat source.

Dressed

Dressed, designed for Alessi by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, is a series of pots embellished with original decorative motifs. The classical rule requires that the decoration should be in the most important and most eye-catching parts, but Wanders applied it in mimetic spaces, somewhat hidden, sometimes unseen to a first glance. The same name of the series, Dressed, indicates a decoration conceived as a beautiful dress, which serves to highlight the contents without having the upper hand.
