There are many companies that devote their business to producing home designer products, with Alessi considered by many to be among the best in the industry. Many companies concern themselves with the manufacture of tableware, dinnerware, and the like, but Alessi is a little different in that regard. They have always said that their operation is more akin to a research laboratory, which explains why they gave themselves the nickname of The Dream Factory. We love all of the products on offer here at Fitzsu, but must confess to having a special place in our hearts for Alessi. So much so, in fact, that we often refer to our blood as being Alessi Blue, since they were the first company to see to us.
Designers from all over the world are in agreement that you haven’t really made it in the industry until one of your designs has been selected by Alessi. Some of the biggest names in design, such as Michael Graves, Philippe Starck, Richard Sapper, Ettore Sottsass, Stefano Giovannoni, Jasper Morrison, Marcel Wanders, David Chipperfield, and Alessandro Mendini have created designs that now bear the Alessi stamp, and which can now be found here at Fitzsu. Alessi may have been in business since World War II, but their designs are about as modern as they come.
No modern kitchen can really be considered complete without an Alessi product gracing the countertops. It may be one of their stunning kettles, or maybe an espresso maker that makes the cut, but any of the products they have would be perfect. The Juicy Salif by Philippe Strack is one that regularly lands in modern kitchens and has actually gained legendary status at this point, which we think is more than deserved.
Check any wedding registry in the world and you are sure to find flatware and china included on the list. Modern brides and grooms have the good fortune to now be able to specifically request Alessi products, but back when Su and Fitz put their registry together, Alessi products simply weren’t available in the U.S. That was a situation they felt had to be resolved, which is why they came up with Fitzsu in 2000, and why we now have so many great Alessi items available for all of our customers to enjoy.
