Alessi Diva + Anna Gong Fall/Winter 2011


NOTCOT has published a few sneak-peek images of products from Alessi‘s new catalogue. The first is Finnish designer Eero Aarnio’s “Diva” watering can, a simple but elegant curved design that looks both functional and stylish. This is available in black, green and white.



Secondly, there is the “Anna Gong” folding cake stand by Alessandro Mendini, both a nod to his “Anna G” corkscrew and a tribute to the classic “art.898″ cake stand that was one of Alessi’s best selling products in the ’60s. These are from the Italian design factory’s Fall/Winter 2011 product line and will be available later in the year.
“Anna Gong” folding cake stand: The “Anna Gong” cake stand is Mendini’s tribute to the legendary folding cake stand “art.898” that was one of Alessi’s best sellers for quite some time in the 60’s. When closed, it resembles the face of Mendini’s famous “Anna G” corkscrew, and when unfolded it is an elegant accessory for entertaining.
“Diva” watering can: Known for such iconic designs as his “Ball Chair” (1966), “Pastil Chair” (1967) and “Bubble Chair” (1968), Finland’s Eero Aarnio is one of the leading innovators in contemporary Scandinavian design. He interests me because I see in him a sort of childlike elder, an eternal boy, always ready to grasp the playful and paradoxical aspects of the design world. In short, a sort of “Scandinavian ludicism” far from the austere professionalism prevalent in Northern Europe design. The projects we’re presenting today are the first in a series of objects that is destined to be expanded.” - Alberto Alessi
