ALESSI Swan by HANSA was designed by Mario Trimarchi, the Italian designer known internationally for his capacity to look at everyday objects like sculptures populating our household landscape. ALESSI Swan was born of a deep desire for aesthetic innovation: by giving the faucet the gracefulness and elegance of a swan, the designer brought about a change in the way it is used, making for new, delicate gestures. 

Trimarchi has worked for a long time on reinventing everyday objects through an unexpected side step which makes use of unstable geometries such that an object looks different from each angle of vision, like a statue. This approach engendered highly successful products, such as the Ossidiana coffee maker, and La Stanza dello Scirocco, the collection of containers and centrepieces designed for Alessi.
