'ape' aperitivo set by giulio iacchetti for alessi
italian industrial designer giulio iacchetti has developed 'ape' aperitivo set for alessi's 2012 collection. the seven piece assortment consists of a bowl and spoon for mixed nuts, a container for olives, a toothpick holder,
a bowl for chips, a waste receptacle and a wooden cheese board. comprised mostly of thermoplastic resin and stainless steel, the aperitif system creates a neutral backdrop of various heights for a dynamic landscape of food. the individual components can be placed one into the other for practical and compact use.
