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.
