Working with perfume makers in Grasse, France (widely known as the perfume capital of the world), Alessi and Wanders created four traditional, seasonal scents named after the evocative mood each scent elicits: Brrr, a wintry mix of bergamot, lily of the valley and musk; Ahhh, a spring freshness of cardamom, hyacinth and vetiver; Hmm, a summery bouquet of figs, red fruits and mixed woods; and Grrr, a smokey combination of incense, cedar wood and moss. A fifth scent, Shhh, was created to explore the abstract with hints of eucalyptus, rose and pachouli. Each of the scents comes in a variety of home accessories, including scented candles, leaf diffusers, room sprays, lava stone diffusers, bottle candle holders, and candle snuffer. The leaf diffusers are

Prior to the event, the attendees had no idea what to expect. Upon arrival, we were ushered into a black room where <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BJx6uOODd7T/" >the colorful collection was unveiled</a>. Needless to say, it did not disappoint.
Alessi-Marcel-Wanders-Circus-2 Wanders brings his sense of wonder and whimsy to the tabletop and household accessories collection, which will no doubt bring feelings of surprise and happiness, just as if you were at the circus. Bold colors merge with stainless steel, glass, and bone china, bringing the objects to life as if they were each wearing a costume. Alessi-Marcel-Wanders-Circus-3 White, black, yellow, red, gold, and silver make up the rhomboid, circular, striped, and geometrical shapes of each pattern throughout the collection, which includes: bowls, trays, jars, an ice bucket, bottle stands, a wine cooler, salad bowls, mugs,

                                From Australian designer Abi Alice, the playful <a href="http://store.alessi.com/usa/en-gb/catalog/detail/dotty-clock-wall-clock/abi11?ic=ujLeKA%3D%3D" >Dotty Clock</a> started while playing with dot stickers in varying sizes and colors found at the stationery store. The minimal clock also references old astronomical devices that were used at one point to measure time by observing the movements of the solar system.

Time Maze Clock by Daniel Libeskind for Alessi

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/time-maze-clock-daniel-libeskind-alessi/alessi-libeskind-time-maze-clock-1/"><img src="http://1.design-milk.com/images/2016/04/Alessi-Libeskind-Time-Maze-Clock-1-600x551.jpg" alt="Time Maze Clock by Daniel Libeskind for Alessi" /></a>
                                Architect <a href="http://libeskind.com/" >Daniel Libeskind</a> went small scale for a new design recently unvelied during Milan Design Week. Designed for <a href="http://www.alessi.com/en" >Alessi</a>, the <a href="http://www.alessi.com/en/products/detail/dl01-time-maze-wall-clock" >Time Maze</a> clock proves that time is neither linear or circular, but rather a maze of &#8220;abstract connections and playful interactions.&#8221;
Alessi-Libeskind-Time-Maze-Clock-2 Built from stainless steel, the clock represents Libeskind’s ongoing interest in time as seen referenced in some of his most famous works, like the Jewish Museum Berlin. The clock clearly portrays Libeskind’s architectural style, with disjointed lines, openings, and broken surfaces. Time Maze comes in red, black, and stainless versions.

Since then, he’s steered the company with a growing network of about 400 designers, architects, and artists from around the world, and currently has over 3,000 pieces in production. Alberto is a master at cultivating collaborative relationships with these designers through the design process, which takes a minimum of 18 months for each product.
