Design Alessandro Mendini, 2021
Chrome-plated zamak, thermoplastic resin
Made by Alessi

Alessandro M., the corkscrew designed by Alessandro Mendini in 2003, is the object/creature that has brought to life unique characters over the years, in limited editions. For collectors of Alessandro Mendini and of his quick-change corkscrews: Alessandro M. Galla Placidia, embellished by Mendini's historic decoration that enhances its delicate design. The attraction of the lights, colors and mosaic vaults of the small mausoleum in Ravenna dedicated to the Roman empress Galla Placidia has inspired this iridescent play of shapes and colors, striking for the rigour of its geometries in contrast to its vivid and dreamy hues.

The Alessandro M. corkscrew is the self-portrait of its creator, Alessandro Mendini. The creation of a character capable, with continuous transformations, of fitting gracefully into the design scenario was far from easy. Groningen is a special edition, corkscrew made of thermoplastic resin and chrome-plated zamak.
