Alessandro M. "Groningen"
A limited edition of one of Alessandro Mendini's most popular pieces for Alessi, the corkscrew Alessandro M. "Groningen" celebrates the 25th anniversary of the opening of perhaps his most acclaimed architectural project, the Groninger Museum in Groningen, the Netherlands. As chief architect of the Groninger, Mendini created one of the most spectacular postmodern buildings of the late 20th century. A riot of colours and shapes, it typifies the work of the late Italian architect. In his last limited edition for this iconic corkscrew, Mendini "dresses" Alessandro M. in his colourful Proust motif from the museum's exterior.
