'Dressed' table set designed by Marcel Wanders for Alessi is simply stunning. Meant for special occasions, the tableware mixes modern minimalism and traditional luxury with a high-class look thanks to its delicate lace-like ornaments and stylish flowery edges. With a similar design, the cutlery has an incontestable refined quality reminding us of Baroque age.
