The Blow Up bowl by Alessi, reminiscent of a game of jackstraws, is based on the welding of hypothetical steel wire remainders in order to create different container shapes.
All objects of the Alessi Blow Up collection display is the unmistakable handwriting of the Brazilian Campana brothers. The seemingly random arrangement of the individual metal sticks, reminiscent of a jackstraws game, sometimes turn into a bowl, sometimes a plate or a fruit basket. The lively geometric interplay of shadows is also interesting, which emerges depending on the light incidence.
Humberto and Fernando Campana chose mirror polished 18/10 stainless steel as material for the “Blow Up” objects.
