IL TORNITORE MATTO

“I decided to commence this design exploration – which is also the start of a new brand called Il Tornitore Matto (“the mad turner”) – because examining origins seems to be a useful road toward the future.
I refer to Alice in Wonderland because I aspire to feel free, at least for a moment, from the typical restrictions of industrial production, to demonstrate that an ancient production process with many technical limits, can allow human creativity to obtain astonishing results – a wedding of poiesis and techne.” Alberto Alessi

Chapter: 1
Bowls, Trays, Glasses & Vases

This collection of diverse objects (made between mid-2022 and early 2023) is an ongoing project, meaning it is the beginning of a new story rather than an arrival point. It’s the first chapter of an exploration that Alberto Alessi has decided to undertake for the pleasure of discovering new territories where designers and entrepreneur are free to establish the rules of the creative process autonomously. If there is an aim, it is to place an accent on the experimental formulation of the industrial model that has distinguished the galaxy of design investigations Alessi has fostered over the years. This first instalment of Il Tornitore Matto originated in conversations with Giulio Iacchetti – he is co-director of the meta project. Of course it was also generated by the designers who took part: Pierre Charpin, Federico Angi, Michael Anastassiades, Nika Zupanc, Naoto Fukasawa, Paolo Ulian, Michele De Lucchi and Andrea Branzi.
