Design Alessandro Mendini, 2021
Chrome-plated zamak, thermoplastic resin

A special cloth enhances the soft and delicate design of the Anna G. corkscrew designed by Alessandro Mendini. 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.

Galla Placidia is a special edition, corkscrew made of thermoplastic resin and chrome-plated zamak. Also available as the Alessandro M.

A. Mendini

The work of Milan’s Alessandro Mendini has greatly helped to develop Italian design. He became a leader in his field by pushing boundaries and challenging convention, helping to bring about the 1970’s Radical Design movement. Thinking beyond furniture Mendini also created graphics, interiors, paintings, and architecture. He authored several articles and books and juried architectural competitions. In 1982 he co-founded the the Domus Academy.
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.
