THE JESTER

Stainless steel corkscrew

Manufacturer ALESSI

(2016)
Circus Collection
"This circus is a sensory experience that never leaves you. It’s magical. It’s mystical. It’s larger than life."
Marcel Wanders

With festivity, Marcel Wanders delivers iconic kitchenware designed to capture the spectacle only found under the big top.
Using bold, geometric patterns of circles, stripes, conic shapes, and colours such as white, black, yellow, red and gold, each piece reminds of historical symbols from the circus universe resonating an experience of wonder and amusement.

Marcel Wanders gives this corkscrew the form of a lively, jumping jester bedecked in a multicoloured diamond costume. “The Jester” appears atop one of those platforms that circus artists use to perform their acts, as they prepare to dazzle with a leap or a pirouette. The designer cleverly conceals the functional parts of the corkscrew within the design of the character. The element resembling a circus platform conceals the worm and is the part positioned on the neck of the bottle, while the jester's pointed hat forms a practical grip that facilitates removal of the cork.

Corkscrew polished 18/10 stainless steel.
Limited edition numbered from 0 to 999 and 9 artist's proofs.
