Art and originality coming into your home.

These corkscrews are the two most famous icons created by designer Alessandro Mendini and were the first 'Anna G.' and 'Alessandro M.' that Alessi made in a numbered limited edition, that's why the 1 appears in his product code: Anna G. (AM01 1) and Alessandro M. (AM23 1), because it was the first time!

Made in chrome-plated Zamak and polyamide in 2003, decorated entirely by hand with a 'Proust' decoration, sporting brief and divisive brushstrokes in a kaleidoscope of colours, just like the famous Proust armchair. This decorative motif, which is repeated over and over again in Mendini's style and projects, lends a poetic and charming air to everything it touches, as if infused with romantic energy. This graphic stroke, a recognisable and identifiable signature of Mendini, will flow as essential lymph in all his great creations.

New, unused, with its original box and Proust booklet, instruction booklet and quality control.

Measurements: Alessandro M.: diameter 6.00 cm. Height 21 cm.; Anna G.: diameter 7.00 cm. Height 24.50 cm.

Alessandro Mendini (Milan, 1931–2019), the ‘creator of dreams’, was one of the great masters of postmodern design.
He worked for all the major brands of design and luxury items and gained the highest distinctions, and his work is currently exhibited in the most important museums. It has been a fruitful life of dazzling legacy. Without a doubt, he was much more than an architect, designer and thinker.

Alessi is the kitchen appliance manufacturer that created some of the most significant objects in our everyday lives. Established in 1921, Alessi has always stood out for the high-quality of its products, as well as its modern minimalism, which adds a contemporary touch to any space. Alessi has remained at the cutting edge of design and innovation and continues to work with the most important modern designers, which is why it is currently considered ‘the’ Italian design factory.
