THE CANDYMAN
candy dispenser

The circus is in town. Around the colourful big top, there arise the rides, the stands proffering games, target shooting and candies with the vendor dispensing sweet treats for all ages. And it is to him that Marcel Wanders dedicates one of the pieces in this sophisticated collection. He imagines him in his top hat, his smiling face made up like a clown, hiding the sadness of a distant love. Into the depiction of this figure, Wanders has incorporated a stylish candy dispenser: the oversized top hat is a container to fill with your favourite candy, the broad smile hides a tray into which the sweets are dispensed in small amounts, the perfect treat.

CHARACTERISTICS MW 39 - THE CANDYMAN

A sculptural object for collectors, dedicated to true connoisseurs of the applied arts, it is composed of 35 parts in 18/10 stainless steel produced using three different production processes, depending on the type of component to be made. Lost wax casting, for complex design elements with minute details to be reproduced; CNC machining for details that require high-precision execution for the purpose of coupling; flatbed laser cutting for complex geometric figures. Decorated with decal transfers applied by hand and kiln-fired. Any slight variations in the colour or decal appliqué – either between one item and another, or over time – should be considered intrinsic characteristics of a product made employing an artisan process, which results in each item being truly unique. Some parts are painted.
Produced at the factory at Crusinallo, Omegna it’s ideal for a special and exclusive gift
THE CANDYMAN
character history
A hyper active sugar addict, Alberto stays in control only when his mouth is filled with sweets. As he travels the world, he collects sweet treats in his hat as tasty memories. Once, Alberto fell in love with a pretty Belgian praline, but as his addiction grew stronger than his love, the sweet piece of chocolate very soon ended up in his stomach. He has still not forgiven himself for his terrible action but will remember the delicious taste for eternity.
