Alessandro Mendini

Alessandro Mendini (1931-2019) was one of the great italian designers, architects and artists of postmodern design between the ‘60s and ‘70s. His revolutionary, visionary and ironic style is concretized in artworks destined to become real design icons. Among them, the Proust armchair for Magis, a work of Re-Design characterized by a romantic, baroque and distinctly ludic style and the world-famous Anna G. bottle openers for Alessi, for which he also was meta-project consultant.

Alessandro Mendini elaborated theories and concepts about postmodern design, banal design and re-design.

Mendini gave life to a wide range design which includes pieces of furniture, objects, ambiences, paintings, installations and architectures.
Born in Milan, he graduated in 1959 in Architecture and started his career at the Studio Nizzoli Associati. During the ‘70s he approached Radical Design, standing in 1973 between the founders of the Global Tools, a group of designers firmly standing against tradition. In 1979 he entered the Studio Alchimia, with the mission of creating objects reminding the kitsch and popular culture, outside industrial production and functionality. In 1989 he opened the Atelier Mendini in Milan, with his brother Francesco.
