"I have always considered design to be a creative discipline with an artistic and poetic input. It serves to bring a touch of transcendence to our consumer society, to distinguish between function and emotion, and to provoke surprise and touch our souls with the beauty of our objects." -Alessandro Mendini

Made in a limited edition of 999 numbered copies and and 3 artist's proofs, Alessandro Mendini’s Proust vase is an object that straddles the line between art and design, dedicated to collectors with a passion for unique objects. A precious object, the lid and base are decorated with pure gold applied by hand, that gives us an extraordinary interpretation of the famous decoration inspired by the renowned writer Marcel Proust and the Parisian pointillists. Part of the Alessi 100 values collection.

15.75" h | 4.17" dia.

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 Bombe, 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.
