So even though my Bertoia stools aren't going to happen, my pals at All Modern still like me. So much so that they want to do a give away with Kitchen and Residential Design. Here it is:
This is Michael Graves' 9093 Kettle (the big one) and this is what we're giving away.
Michael Graves' New Americana collection for Alessi from 1985 grew out of his dissatisfaction with Modernist expression. In a series of experiments to help him find a newer design vocabulary, he turned a Postmodernist eye to every day objects. His New Americana collection was an over night sensation and it brought the work of an already-famous architect and product designer into the homes of people worldwide.
Graves' pairing his iconographic sensibilities with Alessi is a perfect match. Alessi's entire raison d’être is to re-imagine every day objects. Graves' career is marked by his embrace of a studied whimsy and I love him for it. That same studied whimsy is at the root of my passion for all things Alessi too. I'm pretty thrilled to have the chance to bring some of the serious fun into someone else's life through this give away.
All Modern carries most of Alessi's collections by the way, so give them a look-see. Alessi proves that Modern design can be both a serious art form and a whole lot of fun.
So it's pretty simple. All you need to do is leave a comment after this post and I'll draw a winner at random next Sunday, 14 June. There aren't any magic words to repeat or assignments to complete for this one. All I'm looking for is a comment. Good luck!
