Simplicity is the key to the new set of tableware cooked up between French Michelin-starred Chef Guy Savoy and Designer Bruno Moretti for Italian kitchenware design firm Alessi. Entitled the “Human Collection”, the whole set consists of a salad bowl in two different sizes, a pair of salad servers, as well as a cutlery set for amuse-bouches and desserts, all manufactured for a subtle aesthetic effect by playing with the shine and bend of the material.
Diners at Guy Savoy’s restaurant at the Monnaie de Paris can view the collection in action, where the chef will be making use of them of course. The mirrored surface of the plates reflect and disperse the image of any dishes placed upon it, creating a lively multiplicity for the eye. The thinness of the elongated cutlery makes for a dainty effect.
Guy Savoy received his three stars in 2002, and this status was reaffirmed in Michelin’s latest guide. This isn’t the first time Alessi has worked with such a high profile chef. In fact, they’ve been collaborating with such names since the 1970s. Another renowned French chef they worked with was Alain Ducasse, who teamed with the designer Patrick Jouin to create the brand’s “Pasta Pot”.
