About the Designers
Gabriele Chiave Gabriele Chiave France 

Gabriele Chiave was born in Metz. Two years later he moved with his family, spending 4 months in Dakar, 5 in Caracas, 1 in Buenos Aires, 3 in Rome (where he completed his higher secondary education) and then 8 years in Milan where he studied Industrial Design at IED and began working with a number of design studios, including Syn design, Fabio Rotella, and Lorenza Bozzoli. He participated and exhibited in projects such as Emergency, Rotari, Epson, and Toshiba. From 2004 to 2006 he worked with Marc Sadler at the Ideal Standard European Research Centre, and he worked with many other companies. In the same period he was involved in and provided assistance for 6 lpwk/alessi workshops, which began in 2003 and are still being run. He has worked freelance for clients and customers in the design field since 2006. He has lived in Amsterdam since early 2007.

LPWK LPWK Italy 

Born in Bergamo, Italy, Laura Polinoro graduated in Drama Art and Music Studies in Bologna. Her first job was in the field of contemporary dance as art director and costume and set designer. Later she undertook research at the Domus Academy in Milan. From 1990 to 1998 she was in charge of the Centro Studi Alessi, where she operated as meta-project designer and art director, coordinating workshops both in-house and in association with various universities and design institutes the world over. She was also involved in publishing and communications activities. Items which entered production in that period are identified with the acronym ôCSAö. Since 2004 products overseen by Ms. Polinoro have been identified with the letters "LPWK"

Apostrophe is an unusual object that does not reveal its function at first sight. It works like an agile plough to cut through the peel, leaving marks that are free and even decorative. The gesture is also made pleasing by the ergonomic hold that adapts well to the fingers, and by the material in precision-cast steel with matte finish to improve the grip.

Alessi Gabrile Chiave Apostrophe Orange Peeler

Very specific

 from Sewanee, TN– Verified Buyer

This one is my own fault--I thought that the implement was an orange zester. It is not. It is a tool to peel strips of orange peel for decoration, and for that it functions perfectly. It also is a pretty piece of decoration on my counter, which is what I now use it for.

Great Orange Peeler

 from Saratoga Springs, NY– Verified Buyer

The first orange peeler I received appeared to be one that was used and then returned. However when I called customer service to discuss returning it I had no problem doing so. The customer service rep was very polite, helpful, professional & even apologized for the initial peeler. When I received the second peeler it appeared to be new and was shipped very quickly to me. The peeler has a solid weight to it, fits ergonomically in the hand and slices through fruits with a thick skin very easily and quickly. I truly enjoy this peeler and use it a least once a week.
