About the Designer
David Chipperfield David Chipperfield England (1953 - )

David Chipperfield received his Diploma from the Architectural Association in London and from 1978 - 84 worked at the practices of Douglas Stephen, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster. He established his own architectural practice in London in 1984 and in 1987 the office in Berlin was established. The practice currently has 130 staff and has won over 20 national and international competitions as well as many international awards and citations for design excellence, including RIBA, RFAC & AIA. David Chipperfield has taught architecture in Europe and the United States and has lectured extensively on the work of the practice. He has been Professor of Architecture in the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden K?nste, Stuttgart, Germany, visiting Professor of Architecture at Harvard University, USA, University of Graz, Austria, University of Naples, Italy, Royal College of Art, London, ?cole Polytechnique, Lausanne, Switzerland, Art Institute Chicago, USA and Naples School of Architecture, Italy. In 2001 David Chipperfield held the Mies van der Rohe Chair at the Escola T?cnica. He is currently honorary professor at the University of the Arts London and was visiting professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, USA in early 2006. In 1993 he was awarded the Andrea Palladio Prize and in 1999 the Heinrich Tessenow Gold Medal. In 2004 David Chipperfield was made an Honorary Member of the Florence Academy of Art and appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for services to architecture.

A seemingly random collection of objects, the table service comprises a number of items including a tray, a board, a carafe, plates, bowls, beakers, and cups. The project, designed by david Chipperfield, was inspired by vernacular ceramics from Korea, Japan, and China, and conceived as an exercise in refining functional household objects. The name "Tonale" refers to Giorgio Morandi's use of colour tonality imbuing his daily objects with a sense of individuality. The objects are produced in a variety of materials including enamelled steel, glass, earthenware, and wood. While striving for expressive purity, the range honours today's requirements for durability and versatility.

Alessi Tonale Beaker by David Chipperfield

Nice momento of star architect.

 from st. louis

Well made, but not particularly useful. A small collection would go nicely on a shelf in context of a Morandi still life. Certainly an acquired taste. Need to be a Chipperfield groupy.
