Pinocchio Funnel by Alessi


I have one in each hat color: red & green...

Puppetmaster friend George Latshaw turned me on to this item many years ago as he knew I'd need it for my collection...

Alessi ASG12 - Pino Funnel by Stefano Giovannoni

Born in La Spezia in 1954, Stefano Giovannoni has proven himself as an architect and designer for the ages. With an explosive talent that enables him to embody complex systems within his projects, he has won many awards for his unique and functional designs. Of the most recent, he has been named the best "Super & Popular" designer of the 2000's. In each of his many pieces, Giovannoni has perfected the necessary symbiotic relationship between aesthetic and functional design for Contemporary and pop culture appeal. Here Giovannoni has perfected the idea of functional kitchen items as artwork, bringing a touch of the future to your everyday tasks. The funnel is made from thermoplastic resin with a fun and interesting painted design that turns your common funnel into Pinocchio's face - elongated nose and all, making it a truly unique and one of a kind piece.
