Salt and pepper set in thermoplastic resin and base in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished. A magnet allows the containers to be positioned firmly on the base, but they can also be attached to the steel stem, creating playful new configurations typical of Stefano Giovannoni's designs. It is directly influenced by the spirit of the F.F.F. (Family Follows Fiction) metaproject, which from the 1990s onwards explored the object creation process followed by children and primitive cultures.

Alessi is an Italian design brand for homeware products. Alessi is regarded as a dream factory: it is where the ideas of some of the most creative minds in the world are transformed into products. Giovanni Alessi founded the company in Omega, Piemont in 1921. From a small metal goods manufacturer, Alessi developed into an internationally renowned design factory - yet has remained a family business. In 1979, Alberto Alessi invited the Italian design wizard Alessandro Mendini to join the team. The creative genius has been the design advisor of the company ever since, and directs its artistic course.
