Limited Design - Nutcracker
Marcello has discovered his passion for the crushing of things early. As a child, he crushed grapes, nuts and pears with his feet. As the world's strongest man he crushes everything that gets in his way with his perfect muscles. Countless women have already fallen for him. You should however be careful because Marcello does not only break nuts but also hearts.
The Strongman Nutcracker is part of the limited edition of the Circus Collection by Alessi. He was designed by Marcel Wanders and is a nutcracker in the form of a muscleman. The nut is placed on the circus podium and then crushed by the muscleman’s feet by slowly turning the screws. His hands rest on the platform and his face is distorted to a grimace from effort, because two weights are on his head, which crush the nut by turning.
Strictly Limited Edition and Hand-made
The Strongman Nutcracker by Alessi is a sculptural object for design lovers and collectors. It is available in a limited edition of 999 pieces and numbered. It consists of 18 parts made of stainless steel, which are assembled in three different production processes. Lost wax casting, for complex design elements with minute details to be reproduced; CNC machining for details that require high-precision execution for the purpose of coupling; flatbed laser cutting for complex geometric figures.
The coloured parts of the Nutcracker are painted in elaborate work by hand, which is why minimum blemishes can occur. This is however not a shortcoming, but makes each individual nut cracker absolutely unique. He is the perfect gift for special occasions and a special collector's item that accompanies a whole life.
In addition to the Circus Collection by Marcel Wanders, a series of different circus figures in strictly limited design came into being. There are only 999 pieces of the five circus characters available: Candyman, Ringleader, Ballerina, Strongman and The Jester.
The Circus Collection by Marcel Wanders is a dreamy, imaginative world that immediately attracts and captivates its audience.
