Design Massimo Giacon, 2000
Thermoplastic resin

Refillable liquid soap dispenser, in thermoplastic resin. The work of professional cartoonist Massimo Giacon, an artist of great talent and personality who has used his storytelling abilities to add life and whimsy to a soap dispenser with the features of a bizarre cold character. Press Mr. Cold's head and he dispenses, er, liquid soap or lotion in your hands. Mr. Cold creates an enormously enjoyable and whimsical treat of an otherwise mundane maneuver.

Available in your choice of blue, yellow or pink.

Massimo Giacon

Massimo Giacon was primarily a comic artist, but has brought those lighthearted sensibilities into the world of home design. He also works in digital illustration and as a musician. From 2000 to 2009 he created home furnishing products for Alessi. These products stand out as some of the company’s most peculiar items, being both innovative and playful. They include: Mr. Cold, (a character that dispenses liquid soap from his nose), Mr. Suicide (a character that plugs the bath and seems to drown in it), as well as Pummaroriella (pizza plates) and many decorative figurines that straddle the line between art and toy.
Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombé, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
