As part of the Dressed collection, the cookie jar is ornamented with a fine and unobtrusive design by the designer Marcel Wanders for Alessi. The relief decor that embellishes the polished stainless steel lid is particularly charming.
Ornaments are traditionally on the most visible places of an object. Wanders, however, places them unobtrusively, slightly hidden, sometimes even in places where they normally cannot be seen at all. One could therefore to these as introverted decorations by Wanders. The name of the Dressed collection already reveals how the decoration looks like a pretty dress: It emphasises the content without stealing the limelight. The Dressed line includes cutlery, glasses, saucers, a tea and coffee service, a tray and coasters for bottles and drinking glasses.
The classic design of the cookie jar is also broken by Marcel Wanders with his typical tongue in cheek ways, expressed with the bell on the lid in this case.The bell rings when the jar is opened. This is how those with a sweet tooth are caught immediately. With a total capacity of 300 cl, the glass jar serves and presents cookies and other sweets elegantly.
