The Gino Zucchino Sugar Castor was designed exclusively for Italian manufacturer Alessi.
This prolific design house has a reputation for creating household items that add elegance and originality to tried-and-tested concepts. The company has its roots in 1930s Italy, when Carlo Alessi started working in his father's metal workshop. During the next two decades, Carlo would design and create a range of successful product lines of his own. He took over the family business in the 1950s, and started to collaborate with designers from all over the world. As a result, it wasn't long before this quintessentially Italian business had a loyal following worldwide.
The Gino Zucchino Sugar Castor is a fun set of sugar holders that will bring a smile to your face. These whacky items take the shape of alien-like creature, with big feet and a giant smiling face. They are made with moulded plastic, which ensures they keep sugar dry and fresh. Each item weighs just 200 grams and holds 0.2 litres of sugar. The Gino Zucchino Sugar Castor is 14cm high, and is made with durable plastic that has been designed to stand the test of time.
