'barbicù' by piero lissoni, fochista for alessi at macef 09

charcoal and gas ‘barbicù’

alessi presented its first barbeque, ‘barbicù’ at macef 09. designed by piero lissoni, and manufactured by fochista, ‘barbicù’ is sold pre-assembled ready to use. it can be ignited by gas brazier or using charcoal, can be enlarged at will, and comes with work-tops, service trolleys and steel, wooden and textile accessories.

will-o’-the-wisp ‘an object dedicated to rustic cooks, explorers of taste, world-travelling gourmets, bucolic sophisticates and lovers of life in the open air. more of a traveling-case than a domestic utensil. an essential, multi-form structure, ideal for cooking on deserted islands, exotic boats, garden terraces, and even in old courtyards, age-old parks, roof-top terraces, canal banks. its presence is never mundane, never common; simple, upbeat shapes evoking a domestic life in which no detail is overlooked.’ -piero lissoni
