Helen Kontouris is one of a select few Australian designers who have been invited to design for iconic homewares brand Alessi. The release of the Scoop Egg Cup + Spoon is the first of her designs for the brand and marks a hugely successful 10 years for her eponymous design company.
“I feel as though I’ve progressed from creating product that was inspired by what just pleased me to deriving satisfaction from the creation of product that a client is not only excited about but it’s something that will improve their business growth as well,” Kontouris says reflecting on the past 10 years.
The elegance and fluidity of the Scoop Egg Cup + Spoon reflects Kontouris’ love of curves, while the 18/10 stainless steel represents her passion for employing a wide range of materials across her designs.
You can buy the egg cup and spoon from Alessi and they should be hitting retail shelves in Australia very soon.
