"I have often written that ours is not a generation of 'irrationalists', but rather of people seeking a different rationality, also containing irrationality and dreams, which, in truth, form a large part of reality as well." Designer Andrea Branzi created the Alessi Toothpick Holder from turned wood, a material he believes has potential for "establish(ing) relationships...of a psychological, symbolic, and poetic nature." To use, press the figure down and he picks up a toothpick for you.
Alessi, known as the Italian design factory, has manufactured household products since 1921. The stylish and fun items offered are the result of contemporary partnerships with some of the world's best designers of unique and modern home accessories.
The Toothpick Holder is available with the following:
- Made of pear wood and metal
