The Blow Up range of containers by the Campana brothers is being launched as part of Alessi’s spring/summer range. Created ‘with the idea of assembling hypothetical offcuts of steel wire and welding them together’, the Blow Up family of products is part of the Brazilian-born duo’s attempt to ‘express the contradictions of urban chaos’ using ‘hybrid, primitive forms’.
