Alessandro Mendini is one of the defining Italian designers of the 20th century. He is best known for his “re-designs”. Instead of forcefully trying to create something new, he gave new life to already existing pieces. Probably his best-known creation, the corkscrew “Anna G.”, almost wouldn’t have gotten into the hands of the masses. The corkscrew was intended as a present for a journalist. It was only thanks to Alberto Alessi that the now design classic was offered for sale to the public. Photo: EdoM, License: GFDL
