The elegant and distinctive Fruit Bowl AC04 was designed for the premium manufacturer Alessi by the renowned and well-respected architect and designer Achille Castiglioni.
The designer graduated from Politecnico di Milano in 1944 and continued to work alongside his brother and Luigi Caccia Dominioni at the architectural practice the trio had founded. Castiglioni was commissioned to lead the restoration project of the Palazzo della Permanente after the building had been destroyed during the second world war. The designer continued to work alongside his brothers for the majority of his career and also lectured at major institutions, including The Politecnico di Torino and the Politecnico di Milano.
Constructed entirely from robust and durable stainless steel and aluminium, the Fruit Bowl AC04 is of striking and unique appearance and will complement its surroundings, be they traditional or contemporary. With a capacity of 1.5 litres, the bowl is large enough to hold an array of different fruits. The net-like inner of the bowl is removable and the item is easily cleaned and maintained, ensuring it will remain in peak condition for many years to come. The Fruit Bowl AC04 measures 21cm, with a diameter of 25cm.
