The design of this tray comes from a small Pompeii bronze known as Placentarius, depicting an old naked man, rather flamboyantly erect, and holding a tray on his palm. Discovered in 1925 in the House of Efebo in Pompeii, it is now in the Archaeological Museum of Naples. There are four examples in mirror-image symmetrical pairs: it is highly probable that they formed a decorative set for the dining area, and that they contained toothpicks. The bronze statue was the model for recreating the tray in its original proportions, using modern technology, metal and industrial production methods. Designed by: Anonimo Pompeiano
Alessi's intention, from the beginning, was to be highly innovative and ready to experiment with cookware. With this in mind, the Alessi family venture explored new materials and novel design in becoming one of the finest and most well-known contemporary cookware brands. Alessi prides itself on its unique collaboration with designers and architects to produce beautiful, quality cookware. Among some of the best known of the Alessi's products are Richard Sapper's kettle with a two-tone whistle, Michael Graves' kettle with bird shaped whistle, and Philippe Starck's Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
