This 'Lily Pond' sushi set is part of a family of objects called 'OrienTales' by Alessi and designed by Stefano Giovannoni, currently out of production and discontinued, hard to find, a collector's item.
This beautiful sushi set consists of a plate and sticks in melamine, a plate for soy sauce and a sticks holder in fine porcelain decorated by hand.
OrienTales' is the result of an ongoing collaboration with the National Palace Museum of Taiwan, which began in 2007 with the 'Chin Family'. He was coming into close contact with the extraordinary art work collection of the National Palace Museum that set off Stefano Giovannoni's imagination, inspiring him to explore the thousand-year-old tradition of Chinese applied arts and develop his own contemporary interpretation of them. This interpretation is consistent with the playful style which the designer is recognised to master, feature that takes a very new form in the designs presented today.
It is important to remember that the objects presented here, like those of the 'Chin Family', characters or flowers and fruits, each one playing the role of household objects, are partly made of hand-decorated plastic and partly of fine bone and hand-decorated porcelain as well. The magic of Stefano Giovannoni's design lies in the fact that these objects recall the grace of 18th century ceramic trinkets, and at the same time they are absolutely contemporary!
Stefano Giovannoni (1954, La Spezia, Italy) is an architect, industrial designer and interior designer, living and working in Milan.
Stefano Giovannoni has designed many of the best-selling icons and many of the most commercially successful products of the last decades.
In fact, Giovannoni says that seeing the results of his products is even more satisfying for him than the many prestigious awards he has won over the years. 'It is my job to think about how a product will be received in the market, and that is something that I take very seriously.'
Giovannoni's prodigious work is included in major museums around the world.
Alessi is the kitchen appliance manufacturer that has created some of the most significant objects in our everyday lives.
