Living: Alessi Pinocchio

CORK IT. The Fourth Doctor from “Doctor Who” once said, “There’s no point in being a grown-up when you can’t be childish sometimes.”

So, embrace your cheeky childish side this festive season with a limited-edition “Pinocchio” by versatile Italian product designer and architect Alessandro Mendini. As one of the most coveted items in Alessi’s highly collectible fall/winter selection, this corkscrew reflects the multi-faceted personality of the designer. At a closer look, its colorful decoration is finished by hand while the metal part is made of chrome-plated Zamak. Now all you got to put in your shopping list is a bottle or two of delectable wines.
