With A Pinch Of …

With a Pinch of er… Chilli!


by Jim Hannon Tan +  LPWK for Alessi

Piccantino, the chilli scruncher chops chillies for you, spread and stores without direct contact with skin. Born of chilli 🙂 this design object is made of transparent rubber and steel. Gift it, hang it like good luck charm or ward off bad vibes (present in many a culture differently) or just spice it.

{This post is a special greeting for my rss and email subscribers who have joined me today at this new place. Wish you unlimited and uninterrupted enjoyment of all the fun and function of various design forms presented daily at my site!)

Designer: Colm Keller @ HDK

look! I am so stylish! – says the cocky teenager resting against wall. (I love it)

In a design go a designer’s mood, ideas, hard work, and throwing away 100’s of blueprints. Everything is reflected in the design. It isn’t an easy job.

But a piece of furniture may evoke different emotions in the viewer – consumer; different then as perceived by the designer.

Hats off to designers’ creativity and meaning no offence:-

I declare these ten furniture – most cockiest, very interesting, funny, whimsical or plain mischievous in a subtle way.
