Product code: 73022008
The egg cup is made up of two parts which fit together to form a whole. Once the two parts have been separated, they can contain 1 or 2 eggs and the design of the interior provides three curvilinear housings to offer a safe hold for different sized eggs.
Winner of the "Vogue Living Alessi Design Prize" contest in 2015, the "Roost" egg cup by Australian designer Adam Goodrum comes from a childhood memory of early-morning egg gathering.
The geometric and proportioned shape of the egg, the sense of surprise and anticipation you feel when you open it are the inspiring concepts behind this double egg cup. A dual-purpose object, just like the very structure of eggs.

Alessi draws inspiration from Italian industrial culture to create unique, contemporary products. Collaborating with over 500 designers around the globe, Alessi believes that “a true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories…”
Born in Granerolo, Verbania, in 1916, Carlo Alessi studied technical design at the OMAR institute in Novara. At an early age, he worked in the metal workshop set up by his father, Giovanni, in 1921. In the fifties, he became managing director of the company, introducing a new international dimension, which he developed by working with external designers. He remained president of Alessi until 2009, when he passed away.
Alessi is now a B Corp, a company which strives to maximise the positive impact they have on their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment, by using the business as a force for regeneration and sustainability.More from Alessi
