Farfalla Nutcracker

£30£21

Designed by Enzo Mari in the late 90's the Farfalla (butterfly) nutcracker is an ode to beautiful simplicity and the perfect unison of form and function. The production of the nutcracker only started in 2021 after it was never realised initially. We love how tactile it is to use and how its presence as an object is so impactful yet easy. 

 

 

The products Alessi made were some of the first design items I came across when I was still at primary school and probably many of us growing up in the 90's. Interacting with them widened my perspective to how playful everyday objects and interactions could become, they showed me a new way to approach life not only design, to find the beauty in the smallest details and to create moments of joy through the smallest touch points. This is something we are still students of at HATO and still pursue.
