100 Yr Anniversary Values Collection: Anna G & Alessandro M – Galla Placidia
Design: Alessandro Mendini 2021
New clothes for the most famous pair of corkscrews in Italian design. The attraction of the lights, colors and mosaic vaults of the small mausoleum in Ravenna dedicated to the Roman empress Galla Placidia has inspired Alessandro Mendini to create an iridescent play of shapes and colors, striking for the rigor of its geometries in contrast to its vivid and dreamy hues. In this unprecedented application, the precious dress inspired by expressive art enhances the soft and delicate design of the two corkscrews.
Corkscrew in thermoplastic resin and chrome-plated zamak, "Galla Placidia" decoration. 2021 Special edition. Alessi 100 Values Collection.
