Aperitivo Tower was a shortlisted winner of designboom’s It’s Aperitivo Time Competition 2009
The Peroni Nastro Azzurro Blue Ribbon Design Awards 2009 were run by a collaboration between Peroni Nastro Azzurro and Alessi.
A centrepiece to the aperitivo experience, the tower presents a quick, easy and stylish way of transporting, displaying and eating aperitivo. The plates slot onto the central stem creating an array of organically shaped platters, inspired by the growths of leaves the characterful waiter displays and offers the food to its guests. The eclectic shaped wooden stem is inspired by the shapes and textures found in glassware, finished off at the top by an integral handle and at its base a die cast iron disc, reassuringly heavy keeping the product stable and also providing a utilitarian look which contrasts with the high gloss stem.
Awards held at ICA (International centre of arts in london) and toured further design venues and style bars across the country celebrating italian style.
