The Alessi Blow Up is a magazine rack whose inimitable design was created by brothers Humberto & Fernando Campana.
Reminiscent of Mikado, Alessi Blow Up magazine holder is based on the idea of welding together hypothetical steel wire scraps to create different container shapes.
Common to all objects as the Blow Up collection is the unmistakable signature of the Brazilian Campana brothers. The seemingly random arrangement of the individual metal rods, reminiscent of a game of Mikado or explosions, results in sometimes a bowl, sometimes a plate or a fruit basket. Also interesting is the lively geometric play of shadows that appears in the magazine holder from Alessi depending on the incidence of light.
As material for the " Blow Up " objects Humberto and Fernando Campana chose mirror-polished 18/10 stainless steel.
