Inga Sempé is the winner of the design contest organised by Domus and Alessi for the 60th anniversary of Il Cucchiaio d'Argento, the best-selling gastronomic magazine.
And the winner is... Inga Sempé. Announced on 15 February, the jury's majority vote went to the French designer who entered the competition with her design for a "thin and round spoon that's as simple and as fun as eating risotto". Seen from above, the finely rounded forms of the spoon's bowl and handle are joined by a slender neck, emphasising the idea of lightness.
In profile, the bowl of the spoon has a blade-like thinness that almost seems to announce this piece of cutlery's functionality for measuring servings of risotto. Clelia D'Onofrio
