designed by stefano giovannoni for alessi, the chin family was produced in collaboration with the national palace museum of taiwan. the national palace museum of taiwan can be considered the louvre of the orient for the richness and scope of its collections of antiquities, painting, calligraphy, objets d’art, books and documents. its holdings originate from the imperial collections of the ch’ing dynasty, and the earlier sung, yuan and ming dynasties, and constitute the central core of chinese culture and art. the collaboration between alessi and the npm of taiwan grew out of the museum’s wish to open itself yet further to the international scene, and to encourage greater awareness of chinese history and culture in the west.
“mr. chin” is a new chapter in the ludic design language that characterizes stefano’s work: instead of the usual method of casting a single piece of plastic from a single injection, the character-objects are made with separate moulds, thereby giving greater articulation to the typical wit and refinement of giovannoni’s decorations of the clothes, which are hand-painted.
