Made for use with the Plissé Toaster (sold separately here), these Plissé Toaster Tongs allow you to safely remove hot slices of toast. The wide handles provide a firm grip and are characteristic of the Plissé collection, distinguished by vertical indentations that evoke the pleats of an haute couture dress. Plissé Toaster Tongs are made by Alessi, a manufacturer with work in MoMA’s collection. They measure 12.4h x 7.4w x 1.6"d. Plissé Toaster sold separately here.
Why We Chose This
This Plissé appliance is produced by Alessi, an Italian company founded in 1921. The brand is famous for their everyday objects that strike a balance between aesthetics and function. Throughout the years, they have collaborated with international designers, such as Michael Graves, Alberto Meda, Achille Castiglioni and Ettore Sottsass. Two Alessi designs are represented in MoMA's collection: David Chipperfield's Piana Chair from 2010, and Philippe Starck's Ceci N'est Pas une Truelle Cake Server from 1996.
In or Related to MoMA's Collection
The Museum of Modern Art established the world's first curatorial department devoted to architecture and design. MoMA Design Store carries a selection of design objects from that collection. We only offer authorized versions in the colors and materials selected by the original designers. MoMA's design collection is ever-changing, a reflection of the evolving field of design itself.
