Acacia celebrates the very honey in which it’s dipped.
Details: Created by Miriam Mirri for Alessi‘s Fall/Winter 2014 collection, Acacia is a delicate honeycomb dispenser made of precision cast 18/10 stainless steel. It’s composed of a sphere with an elaborate beehive structure attached to a dipper that makes it easy to serve and spread the honey. Acacia is a type of honey that comes from the Piemonte region of Northern Italy, a national delicacy in Italy, where more than 50 different types are produced – more than in any other country in the world. Acacia is part of Alessi’s Objets-Bijoux collection of design and functional tools for life.
“The hexagonal shapes of a honeycomb form a beehive with two star-shaped flowers on each end. Lightweight, its hollow interior is ready to scoop up some honey. Resting on a tapered stem, together the two steel elements form a single object to dip the desired amount of honey out of the jar, transfer it to another container and stir.” says Mirri.
“acacia is designed to work with different consistencies of honey, especially the liquid or semi-liquid types used to sweeten hot drinks or accompany side dishes and desserts. It is dedicated to honey producers, consumers and all those who delight in the taste of this natural food’s many varieties.”
