Playfully designed for Alessi by renowned Finnish designer Eero Aarnio, the Yellow Duck Timer will add a whimsical touch to cooking and baking. A part of Alessi’s “A di Alessi” line, which provides superior design at an affordable price, the timer is made in a durable, easy-to-clean thermoplastic resin. The quirky duck harmonizes both modern and traditional timer technology—the time is set by rotating the center dial (clockwise for minutes, counter clockwise for seconds), and the remaining time is displayed digitally in a liquid crystal display. When time is up, conventional beeps or buzzers are replaced by a funny quack sound, which is sure to make even the most serious sous chef smile.
Finnish furniture designer, born in 1932, came of age as the post-war boom was sweeping Europe in the late 1950s and 1960s. Most famous for his Ball Chair, which evokes the Swinging Sixties better than nearly any other piece of furniture design. Aarnio's work has meant an expansion of what can be done with plastics and fiberglass. The Pastil Chair and Tomato Chair followed and he scored another hit with the suspended Bubble Chair.
