Alessi Mr. & Mrs. Chin Salt and Pepper Set
Salt and pepper set in thermoplastic resin, hand decorated. The principal objective of “The Chin Family”, the collection created by the collaboration between Alessi and Taiwan's National Palace Museum, was to create a figure concept that would be a mascot for the museum. With this brief, Stefano Giovannoni created a whole family of little characters, each with their own special domestic role. The technology used to make the characters is unusual; instead of being made with a single moulding injection, each object is moulded in separate pieces and then assembled, like wooden figurines. The details of the artistically-interpreted Oriental clothing are painted by hand. Manufactured by Alessi.Designed in 2007.
