Design Truex John, 2012
Chrome-plated zamak
Made by Alessi

Alessi recently collaborated with Cranbrook Academy of Art for a collection of alumni-designed tableware. Four designs were put into production and include The Dear Charlie banana holder by John Truex (3D Design '06). It features chrome-plated zamak and fashionably holds your bananas off the counter so they ripen evenly and slower than keeping in a dish or the refrigerator.

6.5" L | 3.7" w | 11" h

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.

Works looks great!
Casey, more than a month ago.
There are a lot of poorly made banana holders out there, but not this one! It's nicely weighted at the base to stay in one place, and I particularly like that the extender is offset, making it easier to hang a bunch of bananas while keeping them visually centered, showing how thoughtfully it was designed. With bananas or without, it looks great and is a small delight in the kitchen.
