This new family of objects is part of ongoing collaboration with the National Palace Museum in Taiwan, which began in 2007 with the “Chin Family”. What role has the Museum played in this project? What form did its involvement take? In actual fact, it was coming into close contact with the extraordinary collection of art works at the National Palace Museum that set Stefano’s imagination racing, inspiring him to explore the millennial tradition of Chinese applied arts and develop his own contemporary interpretation of them. This interpretation is in keeping with the playful style of which Alessi’s designer is an acknowledged master, a characteristic that, in the designs presented today, takes a very new form. The magic of Giovannoni’s design lies in the fact that these objects recall the grace of 18th century ceramic trinkets, while at the same time being utterly contemporary! Milk jug in fine bone china, hand-decorated.Stefano Giovannoni & Rumiko Takeda - 2008
