The Italian design studio’s first New York store is located on the fringe of SoHo just below Houston. The front half of the store’s café is ready with Joe’s coffee and delicious pastries. Beyond that, their kitsch kitchen and houseware accessories are displayed on brightly lit glass shelves. You’ll find everything from fanciful Michael Graves tea kettles and kitchen timers to Philippe Starck colanders & fly swatters to Alessi’s own watch designs.
