Michael Graves is an influential architect and designer. He studied at Harvard University and taught at Princeton University while designing private houses in the abstract and austere style of orthodox Modernism. However, in the late 1970's he rejected this Modernist expression and began seeking a larger, Post-modernist vocabulary. The hulking masses of the Portland Building and the Humana Building both display his highly personal, Cubist new rendering of such Classical elements as colonnades and loggias. Though sometimes considered somewhat awkward, these and his later buildings, such as the Indianapolis Art Center, have been acclaimed for their ironic interpretation of traditional forms. It is this sensibility that has projected Graves to a star among designers, as can be seen in his many designs for Alessi that clearly depict a "new Americana," such as the best selling 9093 Kettle.The MGSAL Salt Castor is a beautiful classic piece. It is made from 18/10 stainless steel with a polyamide cap that dispenses the salt. It has a mirror-polished finish and blends especially well with many Alessi coffee makers, cups, and sugar bowls, not to mention the 9098 Pepper Mill which is its ideal mate!
