Ultra-modern housewares turn form and function upside down at the iconic Italian manufacturer's flagship location. – In Short
Purveyor of design-focused culinary tools and objects for the home, this Union Square store boasts the largest collection of the company's products in the Western Hemisphere. Items range from Ettore Sottsass' everyday dishware to Stefano Giovannoni's curvaceous stainless steel pots and pans, from Philippe Starck's playful spider-like citrus juicer to Massimo Giacon's anthropomorphic bathroom accessories. Confused shoppers need not be bashful; almost everyone who visits has to ask, "What is that thing?" at least once.
