Luigi Massoni
(Milan, 1930) designer and architect, was responsible for the A&D in Cermenate (Como). After a period of training at the Collettivo di Architettura in Milan and his first professional experiences between 1953 and 1955, he began his design career by making the cocktail shaker (1957, with Carlo Mazzeri) and the Series 5 containers, which is still in production for Alessi.

Carlo Mazzeri.
(Oleggio - Novara, 1927). Carlo Mazzeri graduated in architecture from the Istituto Universitario di Architettura in Venice in 1956. In 1957 he designed the cocktail shaker "870" with Luigi Massoni. It was one of the first Alessi objects designed by external workers and is still in production and can be found in bars all over the world. In the 196s and 1970s he designed with Anselmo Vitale a complete collection of objects for Alessi which were mainly intended for use in the hospitality industry.

These items will be packaged with care and sent by registered mail.
