Asian infl uence for Alessi

Pictured is ‘Tonale’ by Alessi. A seemingly random collection of objects, the table service comprises a number of items including a tray, a board, a carafe, plates, bowls, beakers, and cups. The project was inspired by vernacular ceramics from Korea, Japan and China, and conceived as an exercise in refi ning functional household objects. The name ‘Tonale’ refers to Giorgio Morandi’s use of colour tonality combining his daily objects with a sense of individuality. The objects are produced in a variety of materials including enamelled steel, glass, earthenware and wood. While striving for expressive purity, the range honours today’s requirements for durability and versatility.

Blue Room proves timeless for Spode

The latest designs to be re- introduced using the Spode archive is the unique and very individual Blue Room collection. Originally created in the 18th century, Spode’s Blue Room is an eclectic mix of distinctive motifs, patterns and intricate borders. Taking inspiration from myriad sources as diverse as famous landscapes, iconic buildings, fl ora and fauna through to the classic willow pattern and then the more quirky scenes from Zoo’s past and Aesop’s fables, Blue Room embodies Spode’s quintessential charm and timelessness. Josiah Spode’s original process of blue underglaze printing on earthenware from hand engraved copper plates is faithfully re- interpreted in this modern incarnation of Blue Room and its relevance to today’s market is undeniable, based on the collection’s reception at its launch at Exclusively Housewares and Harrogate. This critical acclaim is now fi rmly underpinned by substantial orders in the UK and abroad. Lead Crystal excellence by La Opala
