Make Up Vase Proust Value Collection by Alessandro Mendini
Alessi’s first 100 years. And the beginning of the next 100.
100 years have passed since we started to manufacture dreams.
During the last 100 years Alessi has stood out as a prime Italian design factory: not only for the objects that Alessi designed, collaborating with the world’s brightest minds, and not only a productive philosophy inspired by an idea of industrial craft.
Made in a limited edition of 999 copies and and 3 artist's proofs, Alessandro Mendini’s Proust vase is an object that straddles the line between art and design, dedicated to collectors with a passion for unique objects. A precious object, the lid and base are decorated with pure gold applied by hand, that gives us an extraordinary interpretation of the famous decoration inspired by the renowned writer Marcel Proust and the Parisian pointillists.
It consists of a form that is closed at the top with a cone-shaped lid. Made of white porcelain. The form is decorated with an indelible decal applied by firing. The lid and base are decorated with pure gold applied by hand, fired and cold-brushed after firing.
