MADE: Italy
SIZE: 1.25" long x 1.25" wide
MATERIALS: Stainless steel
DESIGNER: Mario Trimarchi
Mario Trimarchi's La Stanza dello Scirocco series, designed for Alessi, reflects his interest in what he calls "unstable geometry." Trimarchi now expands on that theme to include jewelry with his Fiato Sul Collo Necklace and Alisei Earrings, which are constructed of rectangular cards of mirror-polished stainless steel with threaded posts.

Alisei translates to English as "trade winds," a reference to the experience in Sicilian country homes where one is forced to seek shelter while waiting for the hot, dry wind that blows across the Mediterranean Sea and into southern Europe to die down.

All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
