Merdolino Limited Edition gold / Alessi Values Collection
Sculptural Toilet Brush / Collectible Art Object
Stefano Giovannoni for Alessi 1992 / Gold Limited Edition of 999 Numbered Copies Alessi 2021
PVD gold coating, Thermoplastic Resin, Stainless Steel
[H 48 x Ø 12cm]
Part of a collection presented in 1992 that scandalised design prudes, this pretty lavatory brush was the champion of the redemption of its type, for the first time considered by the design world. Re-proposed in an all-golden form, it has become a paradoxical object par excellence: it contradicts current logic, surprising with its oddity, and becomes an art object dedicated to collectors. The bottom has a stainless steel disc with the engraved edition number.
