English edition.

From design to prototype: the tea and coffee service interpreted by internationally renowned architects. Over twenty creative proposals exploring new paths of development for contemporary design. The volume features the projects of over twenty architects selected by Alessandro Mendini and the Alessi company, invited to reinvent the tea and coffee service: an emblematic, ceremonial theme, an archetype in the history of products for the home. From the first working sketches to 3D computer design, from executive drawings to the making of the prototypes, the book documents the works of the Acconci, Form and Morphosis (USA), Alsop, Chipperfield, Future Systems, Hadid and Pawson (England), Arets, Mvrdv and van Berkel (Holland, Nouvel and Perrault (France), Ban and Sejima (Japan), Fuksas (Italy) and Baldeweg (Spain).
