Stefano Giovannoni and Guido Venturini are the design team known as King Kong. The designs that were first made were of a very straightforward tray which had its edges perforated with a little man motif, like the ones children cut out with scissors. The Girotondo project went ahead without any particular hitches or special enthusiasm: nobody could have imagined this would become Alessi's best-selling tray! This playful cartoon language made its mark on design in the early 90s.Stefano Giovannoni and Guido Venturini (collectitvely known as King-Kong) are the proud parents of the "Girotondo" project, a line of kitchenware characterized by the playful little man that skips through the designs. Behind their design was "the express desire to skip outright the lessons of the masters of design and find our how, in a completely different way, an object could communicate with and represent the now world of commodities and consumption that came to characterize the 1990s".
