alessandro m corkscrew

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.

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.

For countless generations the Alessi family has been based on Lake Orta, in a narrow valley in the Italian Alps. The area has a long tradition in wood and metal craftsmanship, a tradition which Alessi has played an integral part in. To this day, the company's attitude is still rooted in a handicraft culture, and whilst it relies on industrial technology, Alessi's products are still considered works of hand craftsmanship. 

Since the nineteen fifties, the company has relied less and less on in-house designers, choosing instead to work with independent artists. This recruitment of outside talent has become typical of Italian Design Factories', and ensures that the designs are always fresh and innovative, free of corporate influence. To date the company has worked with over 500 of the most respected designers of international fame, from Achille Castiglioni to Phillipe Stark. The result is a brand known for producing the finest house wares in terms of the quality of manufacture and design. Their products are part of more permanent museum collections than any other design company.

Alessi mediate between the realm of art and creative culture on the one hand, and the world of consumer requirements on the other. In this way, each piece is a perfect fusion of beauty and function, an embodiment of expressive language and of expressive potential.
