Merdolino toilet brush by Alessi.
Merdolino has a very cunning design for an otherwise unfortunate item. It could have been a pen, a toothbrush, an umbrella or even a lamp. But it is none of the above, it is a toilet brush, doomed to clean the spot that that no other object would ever want to touch.
Medolino’s look apparently refers to the shape of a planter while its joyful silhouette conceals ideally its graceless operation. Available in a variety of vivid colors, it is certain that it will add a cheerful tone to your bathroom.
The Merdolino toilet brush is one of the very first bathroom accessories produced by Alessi. It was designed by Stefano Giovannoni in 1993 and still remains a timeless classic.
Merdolino was created as part of the famous F.F.F (Family Follows Fiction) series. The concept aimed to explore the affective structure of shapes and objects, starting from the idea of reproducing the object creation process followed by children and primitive cultures.
The F.F.F. series was completely groundbreaking for the early 90’s when it was firstly presented proved to be a huge success over the years. The majority of the objects that comprised the original collection are still in production and are widely considered classic pieces of modern design that contributed enormously to the immense popularity and recognition of Alessi.
