An apparently random collection of objects, the Tonale table service comprises a number of items including a tray, a board, a carafe, plates, bowls, beakers and cups. The forms are inspired by vernacular ceramics from Korea, Japan and China, as well as by the work of the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi. Conceived as an exercise in refining functional household objects and produced in stoneware, timber, glass and enamelled steel, the objects strive for expressive purity, without neglecting durability and versatility.
This wooden plate confirms the unconventional nature of Tonale set. The outline repeats the formal and functional characters of a plate, which can be used either to contain food or as a chopping board.

Since its establishment in 1921, Alessi has gradually evolved, becoming a leading exponent of the “Factories of Italian design”, capable of mediating between the most interesting expressions of international creativity and the public, society and the market. Its mission is to translate these creative expressions into real objects capable of fulfilling dreams and satisfying the public’s desires.
