We are proud to announce that the winning project of Concrete In Design, the contest sponsored by Italcementi and Alessi, has finally entered the market. The project is one of the many designs received through the contest that invited participants to propose their own idea of a centrepiece to be made of cement, suitable also for outdoor settings.
Among the entries, Alessi and LPWK selected the design of Luca Galbusera, originally named “omaggio all’artigiano / tribute to the craftsman”, that celebrated the “importance of the craftsman, not only as a person with their own activities, but particularly as a custodian of the culture of his art. A true full-time worker, an example of the discipline’s operator.”
The bowl was officially presented at the Alessi Flagship store in Milan on 27th March 2014, where it was greeted with real appreciation by a interested crowd of fans, journalists, designers and business representatives. It was later presented at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair of New York (ICFF) and was awarded the Design Plus 2015 by Messe Frankfurt.
