Eye-catching white fruit bowl, La Stanza Dello Scirocco designed by Mario Trimarchi for Alessi. The design of Sarrià basket is geometrically irregular items made up of small splinters of various sizes, interlaced in an unstable balance.

“La Stanza dello Scirocco” is a range of items born out of the abstract and motionless atmosphere of a magic place: the room in large Sicilian country homes where one is forced to seek shelter from the sultriness while waiting for the sirocco to die down. It is a room without windows in which you can do nothing but ponder the wind that is undoing all sublunary things outside.

The upshot is a collection of geometrically irregular items made up of small splinters of various sizes, interlaced in an unstable balance.

About the designer: Mario Trimarchi, born in Sicily, has lived and worked in Milan since 1983. An architect of the “freehand” generation, he has always moved freely within the visual universe and considers drawing, photography, design and image as equal components with the same theoretical approach.

An attractive gift for a wedding, anniversary or house-warming present.
