WORDS Michaela Stehr
Acclaimed Dutch designer Marcel Wanders’ latest tableware range for Italian brand Alessi gains inspiration from the circus.
The line launched at The London Design Festival 2016 and is comprised of 29 kitchen and tableware products. The five main pieces are limited to an edition of 999 items.
Marcello The Strongman is a nutcracker, The Jester is a quirky corkscrew, Valentina The Ballerina is a music box, Massimo is The Ringleader and a dinner bell and The Candyman is a sweet dispenser.
Each piece is decorated by hand and made through a process of laser-cutting, lost wax casting and machine processing.
The collection will be available at Harrods in the UK and online.
