modern mahjong

Alessi during the Beijing Design Week earlier has transformed the gallery space into a mahjong room, filled with 12 tables, eight of which displayed the tray prototypes. Each table had four drawers opened to reveal LCD panels displaying detailed information about the products and the show itself. A specially commissioned soundtrack depicting the ambience of a mahjong room played in the background combined with the whispers of the eight design concepts. One table was set aside for a set of 144 mahjong blocks, each depicting one of alessi's iconic products. the reading room, full of alessi products and publications was painted red to represent the color of the forbidden city.  This is another interesting interpretation of our tradition with a modern lift!
