The "Elephant” sculpture, is part of the collection “Animalove”, is a laser-cut metal figure, folded and molded. It is a project of reverse self production. The designer has reclaimed a serial-produced object designed by herself, and, through an additional step for its characterization and differentiation, through a return, she traced it to its original dimension of "matrix - one piece". In this case, the interest of Alessi was in the production of an object without a purely "functional" function: the nature of its identity is essentially ethical-aesthetic-poetic, with a deep re-connective character, and not "functionally" linked to the world of commodities. All of the colored steel objects are part of her focused research on the animal iconography through the years.
