Bulbul is a brand new kettle imagined starting from the rounded shape of a curling stone: it has an original handling method, as if to suggest an invitation to play by sliding it onto the kitchen counter. In Bulbul appears the extraordinary ability of Achille Castiglioni to translate qualities and functions taken from objects belonging to completely different fields into a project. A game of transfers that has often given rise to the equally famous ironic dimension of many of his works.

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 include 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.
