Alessi was founded in 1921, a family business nestled in the Italian Alps with a reputation for fine quality wood and metal craft with meticulous finishing. The founder, Giovanni Alessi created the Alessi brand but the driving force behind the design based identity of Alessi was Giovanni’s son, Carlo Alessi. Today third generation Alberto Alessi is leading the company. Working with a huge list of world renowned designers, each of whom brings a different approach, Alessi has developed its reputation as one of the “Italian Design Factories”. The current extensive range of home, dining and kitchenware products are design focused yet practical to use and offer you an eclectic range of products to add Italian flair to your décor.
