THE STRONGMAN

Stainless steel nutcracker

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.

A strapping heart-breaker. That is how Marcel Wanders pictures the character that inspired this original nutcracker. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome the world's strongest man! With his barbell loaded with big golden balls to show off his amazing strength, his face grimacing from the effort, his muscles rippling and his feet planted firmly on the platform. Marcel Wanders has fun with this character, concealing the functional elements of the nutcracker within the design. The platform conceals the hollow where the nut is placed, turning the weights lowers the cursor and the lace-up boots typically sported by weight lifters form the element that actually cracks the nut.

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