Alessi Alessandro M. Corkscrew Wine Opener by Alessandro Mendini
Alessi Alessandro M. Corkscrew
Wine Opener by Alessandro Mendini - Alessi - Italy
Designer: Alessandro Mendini
Stylish and practical, the Alessi Alessandro M Corkscrew is a creation by Alessandro Mendini for the Italian manufacturer. An attractive and well presented wine bottle opener available in several color combinations. A best-seller since it was first introduced, the Alessandro M by Alessi is a tongue-in-cheek homage to a real man, whose smiling face has become something of a cult figure over the years. You would hardly guess that this funny guy dressed in jumper, trousers and a hat was a corkscrew. Grip his ears to work the mechanism. With chrome head and sturdy plastic body. Designed by Alessandro Mendini.
Alessandro M makes a stunning addition to your kitchen or a gift for lovers of bold Italian design.
Could Alessandro Mendini be just a little envious of the huge success achieved by "Anna G."? Perhaps that is why he has decided to give us a new character, "Alessandro M.". Because it is obvious that this corkscrew is a self-portrait of its designer. It may seem simple on the surface, but in reality it was a difficult business, inventing a new character that would fit neatly into what was the author's own autobiographical happening, but would also enhance the international design scenario. I truly admire the expertise with which Alessandro (the designer) was able to develop the project, conferring this new creation with a very clear identity, different yet complementary to his now authoritative companion. Moreover "Sandro M." is a totally innovative product: alongside the standard version, now offered in two color variations, there is also, and for the first time, the introduction of a series of seasonal haute-couture collections: as you will see in the images, this is the concept of garments designed to specification for fashion demands, basically ranges of limited series especially for collectors, which will be renewed with the seasonal cadence of fashion design.
