Designer : LPWK, Paolo Gerosa
WHETHER IN THE KITCHEN OR ON THE TABLE, BLIP IS LIGHT, ELEGANT AND DISCRETE
Spoon rest in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished.
"BLIP", designed by LPWK (Laura Polinoro Workshop) - Paolo Gerosa, is the first Spoon rest to make its appearance in Alessi's catalogue. The name "BLIP" alludes onomatopoeically to the wave from a drop in water. The form is made from a thin sheet of steel and is cleverly resolved to cradle spoons and ladles of different lengths and sizes. Lightweight, formally discreet but also elegant and precious.
