Alexander Begge, born in 1941 Germany, designed only one furniture line: Casalino. ‘Not a single drawing I made’, he remembers. ‘I had this image of a wisp of fog, and elaborated on that. It brought so much joy, I was in a glow. The Casala factory had a siren, which sounded several times a day. When the siren went off at the end of the working day, I though it was time for a coffee break. I had forgotten everything around me.’ Despite this pleasure, Alexander Begge never designed any furniture again. He studied potter’s art and started furnace construction firm. These days Alexander Begge lives near Koblenz, Germany. The Casalino tables were designed by Jonas Kressel and Ivo Schelle in 2007.
