2010 NYIGF Faves Alessi's new cutting board and oldie-but-goodie classic clocks

I'm digging Patrick Jouin's chunky bamboo cutting board for Alessi, new for Fall/Winter 2010. Dubbed the Chop, it's extra-thick and features a concave groove around the rim so you can slide a plate next to it; just cut and swipe to transfer your veggies to the plate, no lifting and angling required. I also think it would make a great serving dish placed in the center of the table, loaded up with cheese and bread, as its extra height makes it a smidgen more prominent and reachable.

Was also pleased to see Alessi's bringing back some clocks of old, like Pio Manzu's Cronotime (1966) and Joe Colombo's Optic (1970), both of which were big hits from Alessi's late-'80s catalogue.
