Big names meet: Alessi X Virgil Abloh

Alessi unveiled Virgil Abloh’s reimagined cutlery that builds on the aesthetics of mechanical workshops and screws. The project is a collaboration with the London-based design studio Alaska Alaska and will be presented as a special installation at the Fuorisalone exhibition in 2022.

It also marks a new era for the 100-year-old Alessi, who is now beginning a new chapter of its design history. “(…) I remember that the first reference he showed me was a wrench—very far from the elegance of what we habitually think of as good design. It was almost brutalist. I found this very interesting, as for us, it was a new approach. Alas, we had very little time to make our collaboration with Virgil, but I am so glad we did,” Alberto Alessi told Wallpaper.

The creative duo of Lenka Glisníková and Karolína Matušková sometimes work as photographers, sometimes as curators, and sometimes even as creators of different worlds. Their visual language is complex and progressive, with
