Born outside of Chicago in Rockford, Illinois (U.S.A.) in 1980, Virgil Abloh is an artist, architect, and fashion designer. After earning a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he obtained a master’s degree in Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology. It was there where Abloh was introduced to a curriculum established by Mies van der Rohe, formed from the notions of Bauhaus, that taught him to combine the fields of art, craft and design. These theories, merged with contemporary culture, make up Abloh’s inter-disciplinary practice today.

Design Virgil Abloh, 2022

The classic ‘mise en place’ of cutlery is deconstructed by the artistic genius of Virgil Abloh, who projects it outside its traditional context of use. Through an imagery that combines mechanical details with suggestions from the outdoor world, the designer rethinks the very relationship between man and type, abstracting it from the table to make it a personal accessory.

“Occasional Object” is a manifestation of a dialogue between Virgil Abloh and Alessi which focused on ideas of sharing and discussion, defined by the daily moments of our time. “Occasional Object” introduced design gestures from the world of utility into the fine dining context, as a means to re-contextualizing and progressing the associations of design languages and their place in our everyday life, experience and memory.

The perforation of the handles, clearly inspired by the mechanics world, lightens the utensils and conceptually emphasis the designer's intention to 'go and see beyond' the logic of design and labeling.

This is in every way 'Occasional' cutlery. A term which, when applied to a piece of furniture, means: made or adapted for use on a particular occasion or for infrequent use. Ex. "an occasional table”.

Cutlery set – spoon, fork and knife – with carabiner in 18/10 steel with matt sandblasted finish. All items bear the laser-printed logos of this unmissable collaboration.

spoon: cm 21 x 4 fork: cm 21 x 2 knife: cm 22 x 2

Made in Italy of stainless steel, one of the most durable and resistant materials of all, eco-sustainable throughout its life cycle and completely recyclable

Limited edition of 999 numbered copies
