Present your hors d’oeuvres in a landscape as visually attractive as the food is tasty. Italian designer Giulio Iacchetti created the Ape Apertivo Set for Alessi’s 2012 collection, and you’d be hard pressed to find a design as flexible and handsome as this one.
The set includes a bowl and spoon for mixed nuts, a container for olives, nuts and other small items, a toothpick holder, a bowl suitable for chips and breads, and a wood cheese board. A waste bowl can be added to the collection and is ordered separately.
The varying heights and profiles of the different components are coordinated to allow them to nest closely together, but they work just as well spread apart.
Great for home or bar table, Ape is the latest in a series of elegant cocktail products Alessi has brought forth since the 1950s. Made in Italy from 18/10 stainless steel, thermoplastic resin and wood. Wood cheese board measures approximately 8 inches (20.3 cm) across.
