Alessi salad set Nuovo Milano

New at Wannekes: Alessi Salad set Novo Milano designed by Ettore Sottsass. Now a recognised classic and winner of the Premio Compasso d’Oro (1989) and the Bio 12 at the Ljubljana Biennale (1988), the Nuovo Milano cutlery set entered production after several years of formal experimenting, prototyping, and technological research on differentiated thicknesses in the bodies of the cutlery pieces: Ettore Sottsass wanted his salad servers to be as smooth as seaworn stones.
