Strongman nutcracker - limited edition by Alessi

Measurements


Materials

Alessi has decided to surprise its customers in an original way with a collectible sculpture object: the Strongman nutcracker. It is a nutcracker dedicated to those who like to surround themselves with precious objects conceived as small masterpieces to be used everyday. It is composed of 18 different parts made of 18/10 stainless steel, while the bolt die is in a high quality brass. The steel components were fabricated in three different ways: through lost wax casting, CNC machining and laser cutting for more elaborated geometric figures. It is produced and assembled in the factory in Omega and it proves to be a great gift idea that will be surely appreciated by everyone who receives it. This beautiful and valuable accessory, which can be compared to a small work of modern art, is produced in limited and numbered series, from 0 to 999, plus 9 artist's proofs. Place it on the counter in plain view combining it with other objects belonging to the same Circus line proposed by Alessi: liven up your kitchen in a very original, colourful and functional way. The Strongman nutcracker by Alessi is part of the Circus collection designed by Marcel Wenders. The designer, to create this object with its unusual shapes, was inspired by one of the many characters of the circus: the strongman. After all, who better than a strongman would be capable to crush walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds? The base of this strongman hides the recess in which placing the nutcracker while, by rotating the weights, the cursor is activated, together with the boots that break the shell revealing the kernel inside. The Strongman nutcracker is decorated with decals hand-positioned with infinite patience, one by one, and then fixed by means of oven baking. Each nutcracker can be slightly different from one another for what concerns colour shade or placement of the drawings since it is handcrafted.
