The Chin Family by Alessi


For their Spring/Summer collection 2007, Italian design firm Alessi collaborated with the National Palace Museum in Taiwan and created The Chin Family, a collection of Asian inspired kitchen utensils.

The collection, designed by Stefano Giovannoni and Rumiko Takeda, takes some of Giovannoni’s most famous designs, such as Cico the egg holder (one of my personal favorites) and Girotondo the kitchen timer, and gives them an oriental make-over.


The National Palace Museum asked Giovannoni to design the collection as a sort of mascot for the Museum’s new XXI century image, to raise awareness within the international scene. As a result, the Chin Family, a collection of small kitchen utensils, was created. And here are its members: Queen Chin – salt, pepper and spices grinder also in the King Chin variant; Mr. Chin - the kitchen timer; Mr. Chin again as egg holder and finally Mr & Mrs Chin – salt and pepper set.

Items in this collection are available at Amazon.
