Banana Frame by Patrick Gavin


Bananas bruise quickly when lain on a flat surface. Banana Frame is a small four-legged structure on which someone can hang the fruit to avoid this situation. Made of cast aluminum, its cross-section is sized to nestle neatly within banana stems. The geometric form composes itself around the organic shape of the fruit— like the picture frame surrounding a still-life painting. The object continues Alessi’s commitment to a ‘dignified’ consumer experience, providing people with both a functional and artistic product.
