This new family of objects is part of an ongoing collaboration with the National Palace Museum in Taiwan, which began in 2007 with the ''Chin Family''. Coming into close contact with the extraordinary collection of art works at the National Palace Museum set Stefano's imagination racing, inspiring him to explore the millennial tradition of Chinese applied arts and develop his own contemporary interpretation of them. Many of pieces from the Orientales series are very reminiscent of Giovannoni's works in the ''Chin Family''. Characters of flowers and fruits, each performing the roles of domestic household objects, are made partly in hand-decorated plastic and fine bone china. The magic of Giovannoni's design lies in the fact that these objects recall the grace of 18th century ceramic trinkets, while at the same time being utterly contemporary. Giovannoni's whimsical style and penchant for vibrant colors are very apparent in the hand-decorated ''Lily Bird'' Soy Sauce Container. Made of fine china, the ''Lily Bird'' features a double groove to prevent it from falling during use. You'll know when the lid is closed when the red shades on the head and body coincide.
