Mediterraneo Fruit Holder


Once upon a time, coral could be found all over the Mediterranean and it was exported across the world in exchange for spices and perfumes. Designer Emma Silvestris has skillfully explored the imagery of the sea world to create this basket, which embodies the essential forms and levity of the organisms that populate the ocean.

Designed in 2004, this basket paved the way for Alessi's Mediterraneo series.

The products Alessi made were some of the first design items I came across when I was still at primary school and probably many of us growing up in the 90's. Interacting with them widened my perspective to how playful everyday objects and interactions could become, they showed me a new way to approach life not only design, to find the beauty in the smallest details and to create moments of joy through the smallest touch points. This is something we are still students of at HATO and still pursue.
