Year: 1986
Company: Self-production (Progetti,1991)
Designer: Giovanni Levanti


A fruit-bowl made from an inox steel plate shaped and bent lengthwise several times by a bending machine in order to end up with a long hollow.  This is one of my former projects  made for the exhibition Milanovendemoda (by C. Morozzi) in 1986. It’s a rigorous fruit bowl, characterized by a different way of being: rocking instead of still and where fruit is placed in an unexpected linear succession. Progetti produced a version without bendings  in two sizes both made from steel and copper. The name is an homage to Thelonious Monk’s unexpected music.

Design Collection at Galleria Civica d ‘Arte Moderna in Gallarate.
