OrienTales Banana Bros. Salt and Pepper Set, hand-decorated thermoplastic resin. This family of objects is part of an ongoing collaboration with the National Palace Museum in Taiwan, which began in 2007 with the Chin Family. It was coming into close contact with the extraordinary collection of art works at the National Palace Museum that set Stefano Giovannoni's imagination racing, inspiring him to explore the millennial tradition of Chinese applied arts and develop his own contemporary interpretation of them. This interpretation is in keeping with the playful style of which the designer is an acknowledged master. It is important to remember that the objects presented here, just like the ones in the Chin Family, characters or flowers and fruits, each performing the roles of domestic household objects, are made partly in hand-decorated plastic and in hand-decorated fine bone china. The magic of Giovannoni's design lies in the fact that these objects recall the grace of 18th century ceramic trinkets, while at the same time being utterly contemporary! The book OREINTALES, conceived and designed by Stefano himself, describes the design process behind the origin of these small household objects, with a number of texts and many lovely illustrations.
