PRODUCT: Liconi Centerpiece
MADE: Italy
SIZE: 3.5” high x 9.2” wide x 14” long
MATERIALS: 18/10 mirror-polished stainless steel
DESIGNER: Pierfrancesco Cravel
The natural world--in this case, the Italian glacial lake of Liconi--inspired Pierfrancesco Cravel to design this stunning centerpiece for Alessi. In addition to its intrinsic visual beauty, selecting a lake as the model also responded to functional considerations: the surface of the water acts as the table top, and the surrounding landscape forms the enclosing perimeter.

The design of the surface was obtained by elaborating a high definition, stereoscopic satellite image, and skilled Alessi technicians formed the final piece from a flat plate of mirror-polished, 18/10 stainless steel.
