Description
Fernando & Humberto Campana - Alessi - Centerpiece - "Vime" (as new in original box)
Italy - 2000-Present - Rattan

This bowl, which is called Vime, was designed by the Campana brothers. It was handmade, and measures 50 cm x 50 cm x 35 cm. The bowl is like new and comes in the original box.

Even though Alessi is a factory, the company has always had an eye for the human element in design. The story behind the design and the designer do play an important role in the production process.

This is the reason that Alessi is now including a handmade piece in its collection. The Vime centrepiece, which also serves as a bowl, is made of rattan, but due to its sleek design, it still looks like a true Alessi design.

Vime consists of a sizeable round base of a single layer of braided rattan, from which a type of stem rises at the centre. The stem is hollow and offers space for dried branches, flowers and beautiful feathers. This way, you can add a natural and personal this to this designer piece.

Because the bowls are handmade, they are all unique. Furthermore, it is not recommend to place food in the Vime for longer periods of time, as this can damage the fibres of the rattan when they spoil.

This item will be packaged with care and sent by registered post.
