"This circus is a sensory experience that never leaves you. It’s magical. It’s mystical. It’s larger than life."
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.
Made of glass and offered in four different sizes, the Alessi Circus series jars with hermetic lids can be used to store various food items, locking in all their freshness, aroma and flavour. For these objects Marcel Wanders imagines a decoration reminiscent of the merry-go-rounds often set up along with the circus big top. The lid is decorated with the traditional red and white stripes of fairground ride awnings, while the gold coloured knob conjures up the ornamental element that adorns the centre. The result is enchanting: Wanders transforms classic kitchen jars into cheerful mini fairground rides.
