Exciting day...after a fabulous Italian meal last night I tried to settle in for a long needed nights' rest. Needless to say the espresso finally took hold, a little late I might add, and it was tough to get to get the needed sleep. I did wake up bright eyed, but it took many more espresso's.....
Today's agenda was The Alessi Museum and the factory tour...both fabulous and fascinating!
First stop the museum... due to the prototypes etc. photos were limited. It was a very cool space where displays moved from side to side, and filled with many stories. I even got to see the placemat that was sent to Alberto Alessi from Philippe Stark with the sketches of the Juicy Salif Citrus Juicer. Listened to stories and learned that "flops" and risk taking are all part of the stairs to success!
There was great design in almost every corner!
The new Dressed!
rows and rows of amazing design

view from Alessi...I do not have a window like this at my office!
