Design Alessandro Mendini, 2008
Chrome-plated zamak
Made by Alessi

Through their experience at Alessi, they are well aware of the fact that people buy coffee makers and kettles not just because they have to make coffee or boil water, but also because of a whole series of other reasons linked to factors that have as much to do with their imagination as they do for their practical and functional purpose.

Introducing the initial collection of miniatures from Alessi: a series comprising a number of classics from the last sixty years of production, from the ?"Bombé" teapot by Carlo Alessi (1945) to the ?"Mami" saucepan by Stefano Giovannoni (1999). The collection was created with special consideration for collectors of Alessi products, to give them the chance to complete their private collections of authentic objects and with considerable savings in terms of both space and expenditure.

A. Mendini

The work of Milan’s Alessandro Mendini has greatly helped to develop Italian design, but Mendini often incorporates different cultures. He became a leader in his field by pushing boundaries and challenging convention, helping to bring about the 1970’s Radical Design movement. His 1974 Lassu chair, built atop a pyramid structure, is just one example of this. Thinking beyond furniture, Mendini also creates graphics, interiors, paintings, and architectures, his first discipline. He has also authored several articles and books and juried various architectural competitions. In 1982, he co-founded the first post-graduate design school, the Domus Academy. Currently he teaches at the University of Milan and runs the Atelier Mendini practice with his brother, Franciso Mendini.
Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombé, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
