A geographical surface with views of Dente del Gigante and Gran Paradiso
Pierfrancesco Cravel
Liconi is a table centrepiece made from stainless steel mined from the area around its namesake, high altitude glacial lake facing Gran Paradiso in the Mont Blanc Mountain Range.

Liconi is a natural shape, digitally cut from its context. It is therefore a pure geographical surface derived from a stereoscopic satellite shot of the lake * that is situated 2555 metres above sea level approximately 4 hours walk from Courmayeur or Morgex.
A sophisticated geographical surface, pressed and forged from a flat steel sheet 18/10 with the skill and competence of the Alessi technicians who accurately reproduce a piece of the Liconi landscape on scale 1:2193 and transforms it into a table centrepiece. The stretch of water, the planes and the jagged edges of the mountain range are reflected in the design of the object.
The three dimensional formation of the landscape is an abstract object that represents , in an instant, the maximum point of equilibrium reached by the forces that constantly shape the earth’s crust: a seemingly eternal shape but in reality very fragile and destined to change at any moment. This is indeed the profile of Mont Blanc rising and shrinking due to the ever changing winds, snow and sunshine. These changes are undetectable to the eye but are no more less significant than those that can be seen immediately from a volcano or a tidal wave.
