This charming decorative bowl has been made from brass, the surface is obtained through an ancient goldsmith's technique: Etruscan granulation.
Through a cold milling process, the granulation is applied to the object, creating a lavish interaction with light, for gleaming surfaces capable of enhancing complex shapes as well as pure, simple lines.
The arrangement of the "granules" follows a geometric order generated by the Fibonacci sequence, named after the Italian mathematician who identified the numerical code behind the Golden Ratio, one of the principles that governs shapes in nature.
The clear polyester varnish finish protects the brass from the natural oxidation process & the protective coating makes the objects suitable for contact with food.
Any slight variations in colour and finish are a natural feature of the material and the artisan production process, which makes each item unique and incomparable.

Alessi draws inspiration from Italian industrial culture to create unique, contemporary products. Collaborating with over 500 designers around the globe, Alessi believes that “a true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories…”
Born in Granerolo, Verbania, in 1916, Carlo Alessi studied technical design at the OMAR institute in Novara. At an early age, he worked in the metal workshop set up by his father, Giovanni, in 1921. In the fifties, he became managing director of the company, introducing a new international dimension, which he developed by working with external designers. He remained president of Alessi until 2009, when he passed away.
Alessi is now a B Corp, a company which strives to maximise the positive impact they have on their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment, by using the business as a force for regeneration and sustainability.More from Alessi
