Massimo Giacon & Alessi's
Figuring out the best way to mark the season? This hand-decorated porcelain presepe from the “Figure Project" by LPWK for Allessi is certainly a spirited way to celebrate. The Italian design house enlisted illustrator-writer-musician Massimo Giacon, a leader in this generation's revival of Italian comic strips, for this holiday project. The "figure" is in the figurines...and the aim of the project is to update the refined production tradition of European manufacturers which began in the 18th century with methods and aesthetics in line with contemporary ideas. Giacon has collaborated with the Sottsass Associati Studio and Sieger Design, and developed projects for Memphis, Philips, Swatch and Artemide. Rose loves the polka-dotted box it comes in which is perfect for storing and makes this gift perfect for gifting.
