Toilet brush

Merdolino Gold

£239.00

Design: Stefano Giovannoni

Part of a collection presented in 1992 that scandalised design prudes, this pretty lavatory brush was the champion of the redemption of its type, for the first time considered by the design world. Re-proposed in an all-golden form, it has become a paradoxical object par excellence: it contradicts current logic, surprising with its oddity, and becomes an art object dedicated to collectors.

Stefano Giovannoni

Born in La Spezia in 1954, Stefano as an architect and designer was taught by Buti at Florence University. In the early 80’s he founded the King-Kong Production Group along with Guido Venturini. A technical designer par excellence he has industrial design in his DNA and the capacity to understand public sentiment like no other designer mentioned in this catalogue. His projects began with the Girotondo (1989 designed with Guido Venturini) and the first transparent objects in plastic from the Family Follows Fiction series (1993). There is a huge number of his items in the Officina Alessi, Alessi and A di Alessi catalogues.
