A Placewares guest favorite for gifting and personal use
This 4/set of ice creams spoons introduces fun into a beloved ritual, enjoying ice cream. Alessi is known for adding a hint of humor and play into their product designs and everyday life, and we think these Big Love spoons are a perfect example of that ethos.
Design Story: One of the first results of the F.F.F. (Family Follows Fiction) metaproject, an operation in the early 1990s that aimed to explore the affective structure of shapes and objects, starting from the idea of reproducing the object creation process followed by children and primitive cultures. For Alessi, the result is a family of playful objects reminiscent of fairytale characters: they offer attractive answers to everyday uses, they suggest mediation through playing, and they're a bridge to the world of the imagination.
