Glass/bottle coaster has been designed by a Maestro of Italian design, known the world over, Ettore Sottsass. It's in production since 1979, and is one of the oldest products in the catalogue Alessi. It has become a classic, a true archetype of bar and private service "essential" objects, with its proportions, lightness and function.
Born in Innsbruck in 1917, he is known the world over as one of the initiators of the revolution in architecture and design which led away from the rigid functionalism of the years prior to and following the Second World War. A great and influential Maestro of Italian design, the energy of his language and the vitality of his colour and line contrast sharply with any intellectualism and rigidity. He dies in December 2007.
