Gilberto The Jester Corkscrew, Limited Edition by Marcel Wanders for Alessi
Gilberto The Jester Corkscrew by Marcel Wanders for Alessi
Part of the Circus series by Alessi, Wanders presents 'Gilberto,' an iconic jester who looks surprisingly like Marcel himself.
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.
Wanders & Alessi have produced a series of products that represent the major persona of the circus. Each item has a level of industrial design and craftsmanship that places emphasis on the best that Alessi (and a very few manufacturers) can produce.
"The circus is larger than life. The pageantry and astonishment from what you see, hear, and feel never leaves you. That one-of-a-kind magical feeling is now celebrated through this collection."- Marcel Wanders
