Islands, the fairy-tale design by Alessandra Baldereschi per IVV


On the occasion of Maison&Objet 2020, the professional trade fair dedicated to lifestyle, decoration and design scheduled for January in Paris, Italian designer Alessandra Baldereschi and historic Tuscan brand IVV – Industria Vetraria Valdarnese will present Islands, a collection of glass trays and plates with irregular shapes where the waves of the sea form a texture on the surface, refracting the light like water in motion.

According to the designer, the islands are often the destination of our fantasies, they capture the imagination because they represent an unexpected, unknow and to be explored space: there are islands of solitude, magical islands populated by fairy-tale beings or islands where castaway find solid ground.

In this particular case, the IVV islands are “happy islands” where there is a hill that houses a house: at the center of the tray is a glass dome that resembles a hill with a small house on the top, useful for taking the object, while the small dome in the center of the tray serves to cover hot food or present food in new ways.

A perfect combination of functionality and original style with a touch of fairy-tale design.
