Design is most beautiful when it transforms inconspicuous everyday objects into real furnishing elements, when it enhances functional objects with small design details, turning them into unusual products that will accompany us for a long time. The Birillo series by Alessi is a good example for that.
The bathroom tray by the designer Piero Lissoni gives simple everyday objects an unexpected elegance. The basket with wall brackets offers a lot of space for objects such as shampoo bottles. The drain on the bottom prevents the accumulation of water inside of the Birillo soap tray.
The bathroom tray convinces alone as well as in the ensemble of the whole Birillo collection with its soft lines, its elegant simplicity and the qualities that make the Piero Lissoni collection stand out from the masses of bathroom accessories.
Alessi presents the first extensive bathroom accessories collection with Birillo. Simple and beautiful, practical and extensive – Birillo offers the possibility of completing the bathroom and giving it an elegant and harmonious appearance.
Regarding the design for Birillo, Piero Lissoni based his creations on a rounded square which evolves into different three-dimensional bodies. The designer himself describes the form as an “unconventional square or completely misshapen round form”.
