Super & Popular: Alessi's Lilliput Salt & Pepper Shakers

Alessi's Lilliput salt and pepper shakers must be one of the cutest products featured in their new Super and Popular collection, which features 100 of the dream factory's favorite designs released with new packaging to celebrate the creator and the design process. They inspired this playful vignette from the famous scene in Swift's classic satire Gulliver's Travels. Gulliver is outnumbered by the tiny Lilliputians, who have decided the novelty giant isn't super or popular anymore.

The Gino Zucchino sugar castor is playing the role of Gulliver, who, having displeased the King and court of Lilliput, has been convicted of treason, and the tiny Lilliputians have turned against him. The team had fun with this one!
