The salt and pepper cruet stand Banana Bros is part of a new product family, which Alessi designed in cooperation with the National Palace Museum in Taiwan. It was as early as 2007 that this cooperation came to fruition with the "Chin Family”.
The designer of the Banana Bros is Stefano Giovannoni. It is from the unique pieces in the Taiwan Museum that he drew his inspiration. Subsequently, he began researching Chinese art. His own interpretation of the classic works can be detected in the new products, which blend Asian influences with the playful style typical for Stefano Giovannoni.
Each of the objects is not only an optical highlight but a popular household item at the same time. The Banana Bros are a salt- and pepper cruet stand. Once they are taken out of their banana boat, the small monkeys season every food. After that they are put back into their practical banana boat and become an elegant furniture item.
