Alessi Anna G Corkscrew in chrome-plated zamak.
A best seller
A best seller since it was first produced in 1994.
A tongue-in-cheek homage to a real woman
The Anna G. corkscrew is a tongue-in-cheek homage to a real woman. Her smiling face has become something of a cult figure over the years, giving birth (so to speak) to a rich family of objects for the table and kitchen in a wide range of materials.

Designed by Alessandro Mendini
Alessandro was born in Milan in 1931 and graduated in 1959. He was an architect, artist, designer and design manager, theorist and journalist and began his profession at the Nizzoli studio. He was the main force behind the renovation of Italian design in the ’80s. Among his most significant works during this period were the Groningen Museum and the reinvention of the Alessi image for whom he is meta-projectual consultant. The key element is always a clever hybrid between art and design resulting in popular objects that achieve great commercial success. He died on 18 February 2019.
