Oh, yes I did. Two of my favorite things: architecture+pasta united!

The Leaning Tower of Pasta by Black+Blum is a storage container that makes you rethink historical architecture. Made of ceramic and cork, this storage jar is inspired by the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, which happens to be the ideal shape for storing spaghetti. Coincidence? I think not!

With a cork lid to seal your pasta inside, this cute little jar, unlike its original, will not eventually tip over.



The world famous and iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa has the perfect association with Italy and, as luck would have it, is the ideal shape for storing spaghetti. The cork lid will not only keep your spaghetti dry, but also ingeniously help you measure that all-elusive portion size.



It will launch at Home, the UK’s definitive homewares and accessories buying event, from January 12-14, at Earls Court.
