Barknest Round Basket in black by Alessi is an object that, in name and form, recalls a cozy nest with rounded walls for holding and safeguarding precious contents. The highly expressive design of this object enhances any room where it is displayed.

Designed by Michel Boucquillon and Donia Maaoui for Alessi, is part of the Bark collection, a selection of tableware objects and décor items for the home made in perforated stainless steel. The design is inspired by the bark of the ancient trees surrounding the house that the two designers built in the Tuscan countryside, a place to work, meditate and experiment in symbiosis with nature.

The result is a strongly poetic collection where every individual object proves to be, either in shape or in function, in continuous and harmonious dialogue with nature. The Bark collection is enriched by the Barket basket, a piece designed to contain the scents and colors of everyday food, adding a touch of elegance to your table setting.

“Freshly harvested ripe fruit with an unforgettable taste, bread still warm from the oven, Sunday lunch with family around a table laden with baskets full of colors and scents… The baskets that we designed to elegantly contain and offer simple, honest, everyday foods, we have called Barket”. Michel Boucquillon
