merdolino limited edition gold toilet brush

Design Stefano Giovannoni, 1993
Thermoplastic resin with PVD coating, gold
Made by Alessi

Part of a collection presented in 1992 that scandalized 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.

A useful household tool with added great looks. The Merdolino gold is a limited edition of 999 numbered copies and features thermoplastic resin with a PVD coating in gold.

19" h | 4.75" dia.

$380.00 + free shipping
(in-stock items usually ship in 1-2 business days. Otherwise, please allow approximately 3 weeks for delivery)

Stefano Giovannoni

S. Giovannoni

Stefano Giovannoni was born in La Spezia but graduated in Architecture in Florence in 1978. Since 1979 he has taught and done research at the Florence Faculty of Architecture. He is master-professor at Domus Academy in Milan and at the Università del Progetto in Reggio Emilia. He works as an industrial and interior designer and architect in Milan, where he currently lives. He has worked with companies like Alessi, Flos, Magis, Seiko, Pulsar, Cappellini, Kankyo, Saab, etc. and received numerous prizes and recognition for his designs. His work for Magis included the highly successful “Bombo” stool and his “First” chair, both which produced an imitable style. He has been called the “most bankable” designer and the “King Midas of Design.”
Alessi
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 Bombe, 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.
