Summon guests to dinner with the beautiful bell sounds of The Ringleader Call Bell, Limited Edition. Inspired by the master of the ring, this bell is a moving, mechanical masterpiece. Simply roll the bell along to hear it ring and watch the monkey chase the swinging banana. Capturing the excitement and grand pageantry of the circus, this call bell is made from 18/10 stainless steel embellished with beautiful colors. Limited edition of 999 numbered copies, each Ringleader Call Bell, also known as Massimo, includes nine artist's proofs.

The perfect sculptural object for true connoisseurs of the applied arts, Ringleader is created using three different production processes and is composed of 35 parts in stainless steel. Lost wax casting, for complex design elements with minute details to be reproduced; CNC machining for details that require high-precision execution for the purpose of coupling; flatbed laser cutting for complex geometric figures. Decorated with decal transfers applied by hand and kiln-fired. Any slight variations in the color or decal appliqué &— either between one item and another, or over time &—; should be considered intrinsic characteristics of a product made employing an artisan process, which results in each item being truly unique. Some parts are painted.

Collaborating with Alessi in 2016, Marcel Wanders has created a magical and mystical world inspired by the sensory experience of the circus. Exploring the combination of color, geometric shapes and stainless steel, Wanders has created a fun and unexpected collection of functional kitchenware embodying the historical symbols of the Big Top. From everyday kitchen staples to the five distinct kitchen tools as specially-made sculptures, the Circus Collection is sure to surprise and delight for years to come. Family heirlooms to be passed down from generation to generation.
