Alessi Aroma Mortar with Pestle by Eero Aarnio
Alessi Aroma Mortar with Pestle by Eero Aarnio; a functional design icon for the person that has it all.
Mortar "Aroma" with pestle in stoneware. For over half a century, and with great consistency, Aarnio has designed brightly coloured objects for the house with rounded, geometric shapes.
When you need to muddle mint for a mojito or crush pine nuts for pesto, you’ll be glad to have this smartly designed mortar and pestle set. The mortar has a distinct base, the pestle a sturdy handle, allowing a secure hold while concocting your creation.
The "Aroma" Stone Mortar and Pestle is the only item in the series of products designed by Eero Aarnio for Alessi that is made of stoneware, but its rounded and geometric form stays true to Aarnio's design code. The goblet-like mortar has a stable cylindrical base that can be held firmly or placed on a flat surface. The pestle features a smooth, glossy handle for a comfortable grip. The rougher, rounded end provides a large area of contact within the mortar, which is ideal for grinding spices or certain ingredients. When it's not in use, the creamy white mortar and pestle can serve as a decorative countertop object.
