irotondo by Alessi, the iconic collection in metal designed in 1989 by the duo King-Kong – aka Stefano Giovannoni and Guido Venturini – is thirty years old. A special version celebrates this anniversary: a 999 piece-strong limited edition, enhanced with a 24 carat gilding.

A fresh new look for an iconic design. In fact, to mark this momentous occasion, the basket, fruit bowl and round tray part of the Girotondo collection with a pinch of irony combine history, research and stylistic innovation.

An iconic design and a fresh new look, the basket, fruit bowl and round tray part of the Girotondo collection 

Historic design and flamboyant look, basket, fruit bowl and round tray of the Girotondo collection are thus presented at the great anniversary of this iconic collection that with a pinch of irony has been able to weave history, research and stylistic innovation.

While the children that chase one another bring to mind the provocative aesthetic that Stefano Giovannoni and Guido Venturini employed in the nineties to breathe new life into the design, this refined gilded version transforms the same pieces into refined artefacts with a refreshed style. If on one hand, childhood is represented as memories, affectivity and fun, on the other, the gilded finish represents a new type of luxury, suitable for everyday life.

Girotondo by Alessi transforms your coffee break into an undeniably luxurious moment, fruit is displayed similarly to elegant composition and basket with sweets a delicious temptation. Happy birthday to Girotondo, once again we are pleased to welcome you in our homes.
