The “Double” double walled bowl by Donato D’Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi for Alessi, features a granulation finish on its surface and a rich red tone that enhances this object’s simple shape, for a uniquely elegant table.

Granulation is a specific finish applied to the metal surface, which reinterprets an ancient goldsmithing technique with an industrial twist.

The arrangement of the granules follows a geometric order generated by the Fibonacci sequence, named after the Italian mathematician who identified the numerical code behind the Golden Ratio, one of the main principles that governs shapes in nature. Enriched by its granulation, this round tray is further enhanced by the color black.

The Extraordinary Metal collection, presented in 2017, consists of a selection of Alessi projects produced using a specific brass plate finish that reinterprets, in an industrial key, an ancient goldsmithing technique known as “Etruscan Granulation”.

In 2018 saw further development of this project, which is exploring new possible definitions of the metallic surface. The material chosen for this additional collection is steel, worked in “grains” and then colored to create a different, but equally beautiful, “new skin”.
