The shape of PIANISSIMO basket, this table centre with geometrically rich and complex forms designed by Australian Abi Alice for ALESSI inspires the design of 2015 Gault & Millau plaque.

As a result of the successful cooperation for the previous edition, Gault & Millau - one of the most renowned French guides to gastronomy, restaurants and wines - asked ALESSI to conceive and produce its new plaque for next year, too. 

The 2015 Gault & Millau plaque is produced in metal, in the colour that the Gault & Millau Guide is known for. 
It has been officially presented on the 27th of October 2014 at the Théatre du Trianon  in Paris, during the 2015 Guide launch event.
The plaque, which is awarded to selected cooks, restaurateurs and sommeliers, will be displayed by the restaurants listed in the Guide.

Pianissimo-basket empty ABI04, basket bread, alessi product, metal bowl, aluminium bowlThe “Pianissimo” basket joins the two “Resonance” (the 2006 centrepiece and the 2008 fruit holder) and the “Harmonic” basket (2008) created by the same Australian designer. As in all her projects, Abi uses geometric artistic drawings as a basis to create three-dimensional sculptured objects, subjecting the sheet steel to successive cutting, folding and curving operations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her artistic practice extends across a range of creative disciplines, from painting, photography and sculpture to sound and object design. Mathematics, geometry, folding, abstraction, colour and form are frequently explored in her work. Alice has undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications in fine art. Alice approaches design from an artistic point of view. In many instances her abstract paintings are the foundation for her product design. Alice's work is represented in public and private collections around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
