Alessi's (un)forbidden city


An interesting outlook of the (un)forbidden city design line from Alessi. It's a limited edition line with various items from various rising Chinese designers.

liu jiakun, ma yansong, urbanus, wang shu, zhang ke, and zhang lei. all eight architects stepped away from their usual large scale
architecture projects and undertook industrial design.
