Alessi Giro Kids Collection Tableware
Children tableware in Melamine. dining,[plate, bowl, tumbler
Dutch designer Ben Van Berkel, inspired by his personal experience as a parent facing his children's small but great achievements, is tackling the design of a children's collection for the first time. "Doraff" is a multifunctional seat that leaves room for their innate imagination and creativity; "Giro Kids" is a basic but complete children’s table set: plate, bowl, beaker and cutlery.
The linear design of this children's table set encompasses a design that is sensitive to overcoming gender stereotypes. The colours of the various elements of the set leave room for children's tastes and imagination. Pink, light blue, yellow and other colours come together in a new way, making no reference to gender-specific shades
- A complete place setting for children's meals, consisting of a plate, bowl and beaker. - Designed to meet the needs of children, for that fundamental path that develops their independence and autonomy, as they relate to others at the table as though they are playing a game.
- Colourful, durable and easy to handle. Ideal for children who are learning to eat by themselves. - A non-slip silicone ring on the bottom makes the three elements stable and muffles any noise when they are put down. - The truncated cone shape of the beaker makes it easier to grip; the slightly flared rim makes contact with the lips pleasant.
- Proposed in two sets with soft, satin-finish colours; each element in the set is a different colour
- Designed for children, dedicated to their imagination and natural playfulness.
- Proposed in original packaging that features the effect of the place setting seen from above: a colourful series of concentric circles
- The Giro Kids collection also includes a cutlery set, sold separately.
- All the items are food safe as they are completely Bisphenol A (BPA) free.
- Made with a material with excellent thermal performance, the set can contain foods and liquids at temperatures between -10° and +110°C.
- Dishwasher safe, at a maximum temperature of 60°C; it is advisable to place the items of the set in the top basket. When washing by hand, do not use abrasive substances or sponges and dry with a soft cloth.
- Unsuitable for use in microwave and traditional ovens

Ben van Berkel studied architecture at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, and at the Architectural Association in London, receiving the AA Diploma with Honors in 1987. In 1988 he and his wife, Caroline Bos, set up an architectural practice in Amsterdam named Van Berkel & Bos Architectuurbureau, which realized, among others projects, the Karbouw office building, the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam. In 1998 van Berkel and Bos relaunched their practice as UNStudio, where UN stands for "United Net". Ben van Berkel has lectured and taught at many architectural schools around the world. He has led Diploma Units at the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam (1992-1993) and the Architectural Association in London (1999). Before he became Professor Conceptual Design at the Städelschule in Frankfurt in 2001, he was Visiting Professor at Columbia University, Princeton University and Harvard University. In 2011 Ben van Berkel was appointed the Kenzo Tange Chair at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Central to his teaching is the inclusive approach of architectural works integrating virtual and material organisation and engineering constructions.
