Achille Castiglioni was born in Milan in 1918, he started work as an architect and designer with his brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo in 1938. One of the great masters of Italian design, he was a founding member of ADI in the fifties. The long list of awards he has received includes eight Compassi d'Oro. His activity as a designer is an unmistakable blend of simplicity, irony and fun and its shows his close interest in the way objects are used, in the potential offered by technology and in the use of new materials. He died in 2002. A fortunate, and rare, example of a new product which is a blend of two classic household products: the Achille Castiglioni Fruit Bowl/Colander earned its creator the 1995 Award of the Conseil National des Arts Culinaires de Paris as jeune cr ateur de l'ann e. It is convenient and easy to wash and drain fruit; this bowl is a must-have!

Alessi Perfection

 from new york, NY– Verified Buyer

wash your fruit and have a handy display in one piece. It's the usual Alessi quality and the only con is the price but it was worth it for us.

Christmas Gift

 from Illinois– Verified Buyer

We are giving a Colander Fruit Bowl to each of our daughters' families as Christmas gifts. We had one when they were growing up (and still do) and we all loved having berries or grapes or cherries ... ripe figs ... or most anything from it. It sat next to the kitchen sink and was in constant use. Now they will have one for their children to grow up enjoying good food from. Love it !
