ALESSI BARKROLL KITCHEN ROLL HOLDER - STAINLESS STEEL
Design: Boucquillon & Maaoui
The roll holder “Barkroll” is produced at the factory in Crusinallo, Omegna, using a manufacturing process whereby the steel sheet is cut and laser perforated, and subsequently shaped with a series of mechanical processes, and lastly welded. This kitchen roll holder recalls the bark of a tree: the perforated pattern recalls the knots in wood grain, the cylindrical shape suggests the structure of the tree trunk. The result is a poetic yet functional object which, as its designers state, each time a sheet is torn off reminds the user that paper is made from trees.
The perforated pattern of the “Bark” range recalls the bark on the trees that surround the house. The result is a strongly poetic collection where every individual object proves to be, either in shape or in function, in continuous and harmonious dialogue with nature.
