"We are all familiar with "The Chin Family", the famous and successful series of small, familiar personages, in which each performs a household function. Egg-cup, pepper mill, magnets, bookmarker, caps...The fruitful cooperation between Alessi and the National Palace Museum in Taiwan continues under the direction of Stefano Giovannoni, once again highlighting the concept of combining aspects of Western culture and Chinese history. OrienTales is the latest episode in this demanding and stimulating cooperative project. Colours, bizarre but functional shapes, popular images. In this series of products, the "magic" of Giovannoni's design seems to evoke memories of 18th century ceramic trinkets, while it also invites a spontaneous and contemporary interpretation. Hand-decorated plastic and fine bone china are the materials used for salt and pepper sets, milk jugs and sugar bowls with engaging zoomorphic shapes. Little salt and pepper birds hang on the branches of a blossoming tree and create imaginative movements. A sea populated by lively finned fishes which likewise create a dynamic effect. Friendly monkeys race in narrow banana-shaped canoes. The new OrienTales products are like a fairy tale that is brought to life with new shades. The tribute to oriental tradition is completed by the "Lily Pond" sushi set consisting of melamine plates and chopsticks, a small plate for soy sauce and the useful chopsticks holder in ceramic. Products in the OrienTales family are sold in gift packaging."
