DescriptionPitcher in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished. Handle in PA, black. These two large carafes for water and wine, “Mia” and “Tua” (yours and mine), are the first household design for Alessi by Swiss architect Mario Botta, after his Eye wristwatch (produced from 1989 to 1997).
Born in Ticino in 1943, he started work as an architect with Carlo Scarpa, Le Corbusier and Luis Kahn. From his first detached houses in Ticino to the Maison du Livre, de l'Image et du Son in Villeurbanne, right through to the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco His architectural language has been defined as "simple, archaic, eternal, made of naked evidence and intense sensations" (F. Chaslin).
