Piccantino Chili Scruncher

Designed by:  Jim Hannon-Tan
Manufactured by:  Alessi

This Chili scruncher brings to mind the famous red chili-shaped good luck charm from Naples.  In delicate, “biological design” it unites two very different senses: the tender softness of transparent rubber and the hard elegance of polished steel. “Piccantino” chops, spreads and stores chili. It was conceived to solve the problem this irritating spice presents of coming into direct contact with the skin and mucous membranes.  It can be a gift; a small, precious object for connoisseurs of spicy food… and like chili itself: it goes just about anywhere.  Manufactured by Alessi.

Designed in 2010.

Alessi

Founded in 1921, Alessi is one of Italy’s leading manufacturers of home accessories, collaborating with designers and architects to create functional objects that are designed to delight and often challenge preconceived notions of how an object can look. Alessi began as a producer of brass and nickel sheet metal and by the 1950s had repositioned itself as a specialist in manipulating stainless steel. By the 1970s and 1980s, Alessi was collaborating with Ettore Sottsass, Aldo Rossi, Achille Castiglioni, Michael Graves, Phillipe Starck, and Richard Sapper – creating design icons that are still produced today.  Today Alessi works with hundreds of artists, industrial designers, and architects to create its core collection – flatware, dinnerware, glassware, cookware, office, clocks, watches, and virtually every type of tabletop or kitchen accessory imaginable. Supplementing its vast core offering, Alessi presents two seasonal collections every year that highlight new designers and typologies. Alessi’s designs are included in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. Switch Modern not only shows well over 1,000 Alessi designs on our website, we also have the same commitment to stocking and presentation in our large Alessi-branded store in Atlanta.
