PRODUCT: Scirocco Bowl
SIZE: 5” high x 10.75” in diameter
MATERIALS: Stainless steel
and white epoxy resin
DESIGNER: Marco Trimarchi
The inspiration for Mario Trimarchi’s Scirocco pieces is the room in large 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. Trimarchi describes this bowl designed for Alessi as “geometrically irregular items made up of small splinters of various sizes, interlaced in an unstable balance.” This laser-cut steel design casts a shadow that is as beautiful as the piece itself.
