Alberto the Candyman Dispenser by Marcel Wanders for Alessi

Alessi

 

Part of the Circus series by Alessi, Wanders presents 'Alberto,' an ingenious Candyman whose hat stores goodies.  Sweets are dispensed from his mouth like similar vintage toys.

"A hyperactive sugar addict, Alberto stays in control only when his mouth is full of sweets. As he travels the world, he collects sweet treats in his hat as tasty memories. Once, Alberto fell in love with a tasty Belgian praline, but his addiction grew stronger than his love and the sweet piece of chocolate soon ended up in his stomach. He has still not forgiven himself for his terrible action but will remember the delicious taste for an eternity."

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
