The Chin Family Table Set: Love It Or Hate It?

Everyone, I'd like to introduce you to the Chin Family. Designed by Stefano Giovannoni as a collaboration for the National Palace Museum of Taiwan and Alessi (the Italy-based design company), the Chin family is definitely a bit of whimsy for your tabletop. A five piece set includes (from left to right), Mr. & Mrs. Chin Salt & Pepper Set, Mr. Chin Kitchen Timer, Mr. Chin Egg Cup, King Chin Grinder and Queen Chin Grinder. Oh and each piece is sold separately ($26-$60) and is available in several different colors. There's something about these guys that are just too darn cute to pass on, but at the same time, I think they're just too much. How about you, what do you think of the Chin family?

I don't want racist asian caricatures in my kitchen. Really, people, really. As angryasianman.com says, that's racists!

ktown & haze1nut - I totlaly know what you mean, that's sort of what i meant by "too much" - i thought they were a little offensive, then i realized they were comissioned by the museum and well, as haze1nut said, "very confusing" - i'm definitely in the undecided camp for these guys.

Definitely not for me. *I reject your reality and substitute my own*

ktown, you're not alone. for some reason i thought of the abercrombie chinese stereotype shirts they printed when i first saw these. clearly these aren't on the same level but i do feel iffy about these even though i'm trying to keep an open mind. They were made for a museum in Taiwan so i'm like.."oookay". but then it's made by a guy named Stefano Giovannoni and i'm like, "what were they thinking letting him do this"? so it's very confusing.

i'm probably being too sensitive, but i'm kinda offended by them, despite the fact that they are cute.

Undecided. I like that they're colourful, but I don't think I'd like to have them in my home.

okay they're cute and colorful, but i can't help the feeling that there will be some sort of backlash from these things.
