FILO
BY MARIE SCHENKER
FOR ALESSI
The Filo dispenser for adhesive tape is part of a series of projects created by a design workshop organized by Alessi in collaboration with the Ecole Cantonal d'art de Lausanne in the Autumn / Winter of 2010, a venture that follows in the wake of an exchange with universities established by the company for around twenty years. The simplicity and universality of the adhesive tape, around which Filo is presented as an extra, come both from the dispenser itself, conceived in its turn as an object resulting from linear development, and the acquisition of shape and functionality through a series of added micro folds. The form comes to life through a stainless steel wire, which bending around on itself several times is designed to accept the tape spool. A thin sheet of the same metal material, welded at the opposite end, serves as a gripping element for the adhesive tape. The complex simplicity, or the sought-after familiarity of the resulting object, reflects the identity of Alessi products, and indicate that the dispenser can be put to extended use to a variety of contexts, both domestic and professional. Wire’s hybrid vocation also connotes other objects resulting from the workshop - a Pencil box that opens and closes by tilting, a flying saucer that captures staples by inhaling them – all of which are offered as possible extensions to the "Encyclopedia Alessi" in a product area rarely touched by the company.
