Maple wood table mat designed by Walter Conti in 1995 and manufactured by Alessi Twergi.
This practical and original table mat allows you to move a casserole from one spot of the table to another thanks to its small wooden wheels. This is a wonderful and very convenient design.
This collector's item is currently discontinued and very hard to come by.
In perfect condition, brand new and unused.
Dimensions: 30.00 cm (length) x 20.00 cm (width).
Walter Conti graduated from the Higher Institute for Artistic Industries in Florence with a major in Art and Industrial Design. He entered (and sometimes won) many national and international competitions, such as Frankfurt's Design Plus competition. He also took part in many exhibitions in various countries: the Milan Triennial, the Axis Gallery in Tokyo, ‘Consumenta’ in Nuremberg, ‘Nuovo Bel Design’ in Milan, the ‘Aesthetic Factory’ in the Grand Palais of Paris, Taejon Int., the ‘Korea, Culture and Design Education’ exhibition (MART), '95 Rovereto's Museum of Contemporary Art, ‘Design Challenge’ in Fukuoka and ‘Abitare il Tempo’ in Verona.
In 2003, he began teaching at the Department of Graphic Design of the Italian Academy in Florence. He was subsequently appointed Department Head of the Graphic Design course.
Twergi brand, introduced in 1989, was a collection of wooden objects designed by Alessi's favourite designers (Branzi, Giovannoni, Graves, Venturi, etc.) and Sottsass and his young associates from the ‘Memphis’ group.
Each item was handmade by local artisans to strict standards of craftsmanship and materials, resulting in expensive small-production runs. In 1998, Twergi ceased to exist as a separate brand, and its more commercial products were added to the Alessi catalogue.
