Nut-cracking becomes a work of art with The Strongman Nutcracker, Limited Edition. Finely crafted and designed, this nutcracker features the circus strongman of days gone by, also known as Marcello. Concealing the functional elements within the design, the platform features a hollow where the nut is placed for cracking. Capturing the excitement and grand pageantry of the circus, this nutcracker is made from 18/10 stainless steel and a touch of color. Limited edition of 999 numbered copies, each Strongman Nutcracker includes nine artist's proofs.

The perfect sculptural object for true connoisseurs of the applied arts, Strongman is created using three different production processes and is composed of 18 parts in stainless steel plus a brass nut screw. 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 appliquéd 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 details are gold electroplated.

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.
