Alessi Mr. Suicide Bathtub Plug


Mr. Suicide is yet another awesome little gadget by the famous Italian design firm Alessi. I have always been a fan of Cico the egg cup, which still remains one of my favorite items of any Alessi collection. I love Cico because it isnt just cute and funny, but also extremely functional, holding the spoon in its hand and using its cap as a salt castor.

Mr. Suicide, designed by Massimo Giacon, is probably not as functional as the egg holder, but a brilliant product nonetheless. Available for 18.00 on the Alessi online store.

Via Strange New Products

And while you are surfing on the Alessi site, make sure to check the Tea & Coffee Towers collection (link to flash page from the homepage). Below a picture of the Kung-Fu Tea Set designed by Gary Chang with the help of his grandfather, my definite consultant on this Tea & Coffee Towers project. The design of the set has also been influenced by another day-to-day phenomenon of Changs life: having lunch at the local Chinese Restaurant that does Dim Sum food.


The collage of the dim-sum basket is literally transformed to become the Kung-Fu Tea Set, created out of an ensemble of sterling silver in Italy and Chinese Red Clay from Yixing; with different elements for various functions that can pile up according to different scenarios.

The production of the Kung-Fu Tea Set is limited to 99 copies and I wasnt able to find out a price for it on the Alessi site, though I am dying to put my hands on one of these.
