Within “OrienTales”, after “Chin Family” a new family of products is born and raised: the “Banana Family”. In this new episode of collaboration with the National Palace Museum of Taiwan the monkey, one of the most beloved animals in the Chinese and oriental culture, celebrated both in art and in objects connected with popular culture, becomes a distinctive icon. “Banana Bros”, the little monkey salt and pepper set in the canoe, and the “Banana Band” stoppers were the ﬁrst products from the new family. The group has now got bigger and numerous new faces have appeared on the scene: “Captain Banana”, the monkey corkscrew with a multicoloured parrot on his head, “Chin Banana”, the toothpick holder with “Chin”-style cap and many other characters going right through to the leader of the pack: kitchen-box boss “Don Banana”.
New for Spring 2009 the Banana Chick Egg Cup is a must have for every Alessi collector and egg soldiers fan. The monkey is the lid to keep the egg warm whilst the barrel base is the actual eggcup what a genius idea for those of us that take our egg out too early and its too runny. The Banana egg cup matches up perfectly with the other monkey products in the Alessi orientales range which includes corkscrews, toothpick holders, and bottle caps plus much more .This funky looking eggcup will make a great gift for grown ups and kids. Designer : Stefano Giovannoni Material : Thermoplastic resin and hand decorated.
