Circus Collection by Marcel Wanders
Circus is the exclusive collection of Alessi, created in close collaboration with Marcel Wanders. It is a series which reinterprets everyday forms in a creative and innovative way with the help of bold colours, thereby creating products that stand out and surprise.
The Circus collection by Alessi includes a colourful selection of bowls, kitchen boxes, all-purpose boxes, trays, plates, ice buckets, bottle coolers and wine coolers. Alessi and Marcel Wanders however wanted to create a collection that does not only consist of simple boxes, trays and plates. Stylish objects in spectacular shapes and colours have emerged out of this idea: Circles, stripes, lozenges and slices remind of costumes, garlands and the circus tent in white, black, yellow, red, and gold. The spectacle and the uniqueness of the circus can be found in the collection.
Limited Edition Collectibles
In addition to the circus collection, a limited edition series with each 999 copies of five circus characters has been designed. Candyman, Ringleader, Ballerina, Strongman and The Jester are iconic figures of the circus, which are characterised by their unique appearance. Also, each of the characters has a purpose. The Jester or fool is a corkscrew, Strongman becomes a nutcracker, Ballerina is a music box, the Ringleader is a table bell and the Candyman is, of course a candy dispenser.
The Circus collection creates a circus world which is worth to explore. Intensive work is behind each object and each one can tell a story. This way, everyday items become unique objects that inspire again and again on the new.
