The Banana Bros Set: Salt and Pepper was designed by Stefano Giovannoni for the Alessi label.
Italian homewares manufacturer Alessi has long been celebrated for its fun approach to functional everyday items for the kitchen and beyond. Every item in the manufacturer's portfolio is both exciting to look at and effective in use, especially this playful Banana Brothers Salt and Pepper Set created by award-winning designer Stefano Giovannoni.
The Banana Bros Set: Salt and Pepper has been inspired by 17th century Chinese ceramics, which incorporated animorphic elements into homewares. This modern item, however, is constructed in thermoplastic resin to ensure it's both durable and easy to clean. The salt and pepper containers are formed of cheeky monkeys which are sitting in a yellow banana 'boat' which also helps keep salt and pepper crumbs contained. Every set is hand painted and will no doubt be a talking point at the dinner table.
Complement the Banana Bros Set: Salt and Pepper with more fun items from the designer's 2008 range, such as the Lily Bird Soy Sauce Decanter and the Lily Pond Sushi Set.
