Alessi: not just in your kitchen.
al10000 kaj series by karim rashid.
You know Alessi for their gorgeous kitchen tools and tableware, but I’ll bet you’re not as familiar with their line of watches, designed by the likes of Karim Rashid, Achille Castiglioni and SANAA, among others. They offer some classy aluminum and leather varieties, but I like Rashid’s happy-looking polyurethane model, Kaj (above).
I’ve noticed a trend towards brighter, almost childlike accessories for designers in the last few years. Go to any design conference and you can’t help but notice the sea of black and white clothing is punctuated by glasses and watches that are not only unique, they scream I AM UNIQUE from across the room. Pink lucite glasses and a watch made from neon rubber are the designer’s calling card. Not that there’s anything wrong with that – bring on the fun eyewear! And, from Alessi, the fun wrist wear.
