Alessi Mami Casserole with Lid
Since graduating from the University of Florence in 1978, Stefano Giovannoni has worked out of Milan as an interior and industrial designer and architect. He’s designed a variety of unassuming kitchenware for Alessi, all part and parcel of what he refers to as "poetics of emotion," by which he breathes new life into normally ordinary objects. A reinterpretation of ancient terra-cotta pots, Mami Cookware (1999) is playful yet eminently functional, with hollow ear-shaped handles that retain less heat and allow easy lifting. Available in silicone resin-coated or mirror-polished stainless steel. Suitable for electric, gas and induction stovetops. Made in China.
