naoto fukasawa designs 11-piece cutlery set 'itsumo' for alessi

for alessi‘s 2019 spring/summer collection, japanese designer naoto fukasawa has applied his love for the beauty of simple things in itsumo, a well-crafted cutlery set composed of 11 different pieces. the shaped profiles of each piece of cutlery ensures a pleasant sensation both in gripping the objects and in contact with the lips.

fukasawa‘s collection comes as an addition to alessi’s flatware production, which started as early as the 1920s with sophisticated and curious utensils, and has since then expanded its series with contributions by big designers and international architects.the characteristic of this family of cutlery is its outline, which at first glance seems soft and impeccable, whereas a closer look reveals a discrete obtuse angle in the detailing,’ notes naoto fukasawa. ‘applying such a detail to the form provokes a haptic feedback that allows us to recognise the sides of the cutlery whether held in the hand, rolled around on the tongue or simply when they touch one’s lips. its name, “itsumo,” is a japanese word that implies a notion for things that always stay with you.’
