Design Lover: Alessandro Albrizzi Fireplace Tools
Albrizzi's name became synonomous with cutting edge interior design. His trademark chrome and acrylic home furnishings were known for their sleek, clean, versatile shapes and took the form of desks, tables, stacking cubes and accessories like lucite backgammon sets and fireplace tools. In 1970, Vogue magazine declared Albrezzi's shop in New York's Carlyle Hotel the place, "where chic people of all ages seem to find the very thing for their own or their friends' houses."
Albrizzi's fireplace tools came in materials such as lucite and brass, steel travertine and rosewood, brass and wood and brass and black lacquer.
