The watering can Kiwi by Alessi was created by the designers Donato D’ Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi, who have been seen as pioneers of pop design since the the 1960s.
The two designers considered their work a big challenge, since it didn’t seem easy to create a daily-use object like a watering can with a new design:
"With Kiwi, we had the possibility of entering a product area which is normally restricted to modest design. Regarding this, our challenge was simple, but the process was neither short nor lineal."
Nonetheless, the design results are worth seeing and the design is thoroughly thought out. Shaped like a horizontal cone, the handle is hidden under of the pouring hole, so that the watering can can also easily be filled on lower water taps.
The designer watering can has a long spout, so it can easily be used with vases as well. Kiwi has a capacity of two litres of water and it is available in four nice colours.
