alessandro m. limited edition pinocchio corkscrew

Design Alessandro Mendini, 2013
Chrome, polyamide
Made in Italy by Alessi

As ironic, humorous and elegant as you could wish for, the Alessandro M Corkscrew is somewhat of a self-portrait of its designer Alessandro Mendini and joins the successful Anna series as a male counterpart. In addition to its charismatic qualities, the Alessandro M Corkscrew is a joy to use.

Alessandro M. AM23 27 Pinocchio is the 2013 limited edition corkscrew designed by Alessandro Mendini. An object for the table, Pinocchio is a new character which is produced every year in limited numbers. As with all the previous versions, the corkscrew's body is hand decorated.

Born in Milan, Alessandro Mendini is the former director of Casabella, Modo and Domus. The winner of a Compasso d'Oro and designer of the Groninger Museum in Groningen, the Casino in Arosa and the Forum in Omegna. He is a designer, architect and image consultant for Philips, Swarovski, Swatch, and Bisazza.

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.
