Inga Sempé designed an elegant cutlery set for Alessi
Inga Sempé has just joined the long line of Alessi collaborators. The French designer created a cutlery line named Collo-alto, meaning high neck in Italian. The name refers to the set’s key design element: each piece features a long and narrow neck, connecting the handle and the top part. Sempé, known for her subtly feminine creations, keeps the spectacular interplay of wide and narrow volumes well-balanced. Thus, while carrying a sense of lightness, Collo-alto is a surprisingly sturdy and perfectly functional set.
Sempé’s involvement in cutlery design is not without any precedent: in 2012 she designed IS01, an award-winning risotto serving spoon. For Collo-alto, she used the same aesthetic vocabulary with extending the large round-shaped top and tapered handle to a complete set. The Alessi collection, debuted at Maison & Objet, includes every imaginable tool for stylish eating and serving from dessert spoons to fish knives.
