The grater Parmenide designed by Alejandro Ruiz brings two aspects of the traditional household scene together: the cheese grater and the serving bowl. Parmenide also becomes an attractive piece of tableware once the cheese has been grated. Parmenide is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The Alessi Research Centre (CSA) was set up in 1990 for two purposes: to draw up theoretical papers on topics associated with objects (to be published as books), and to coordinate work with young designers. Up until that time Alessi had only worked with “major designers”, and I felt a certain degree of responsibility towards young, upcoming designers. Alberto Alessi
