Alessi's new 'Dressed in Wood' centerpiece is part of the project “Dressed in wood”, designed by Marcel Wanders. A natural material, beech wood, shaped by artisans, is characterised by knots and veins that make each piece slightly unique. The collection “Dressed in wood”, designed by Marcel Wanders, consists of a personal breakfast board, a serving board, two trays, a cheese board, a cake stand, a domed cover in clear thermoplastic resin with wooden knob and a big round centrepiece. Natural beech wood was chosen by the designer for all the articles in this collection. “Dressed in wood” is a collection made by artisans in Valle Strona, where the production of wooden artefacts is documented as far back as the sixteenth century. This Valley drops down to Lake Orta, where Alessi is headquartered.
Alessi's Dressed in Wood Centerpiece is a Marcel Wanders design. Marcel Wanders grew up in Boxtel, the Netherlands, and graduated cum laude from the School of the Arts Arnhem in 1988. Marcel Wanders’ fame started with his iconic Knotted Chair, which he produced for Droog Design in 1996. He is now ubiquitous, designing for the biggest European contemporary design manufacturers like B&B Italia, Bisazza, Poliform, Moroso, Flos, Boffi, Cappellini, Droog Design and Moooi of which he is also art director and co-owner. Founded in 2000, Moooi has grown into an internationally renowned design label. Additionally, Marcel Wanders works on architectural and interior design projects and recently turned his attention to consumer home appliances. Marcel was the editor of the International Design Yearbook 2005. In the same year, together with Chef Peter Lute, he established the extraordinary LUTE SUITES hospitality-concept, the first “all over city suites” hotel in the world. He also designed the interior of Blits, a new restaurant in Rotterdam and the interior of the restaurant ‘Thor’ at the Hotel on Rivington in New York including bar, lounge and private club. Marcel is the first and among the most important designers of Droog design. He was a juror for various prizes like the Rotterdam Design Prize (for which his own products were nominated several times) and the Kho Liang Ie prize. He lectured at SFMoMA, Limn, the Design Academy, Nike, IDFA, FutureDesignDays and has taught at various design academies in the Netherlands and abroad. Various designs of Marcel Wanders have been selected for the most important design collections and exhibitions in the world, like the Museum of Modern Art in New York and San Francisco, the V&A Museum in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Central Museum in Utrecht, Museum of Decorative Arts Copenhagen and various Droog Design exhibitions.
