Italian Design Legend Alessandro Mendini Leaves the World in Colors

When we think of Italian designer Alessandro Mendini we remember what we know today as ‘Pop Art’. He was one of the first designers in the 60’s to rebel against rationalism, through the deconstruction of his work. His “radical design” emerged very colorful pieces, full of cultural, ironies and controversial references.

Alessandro Mendini, an architect, designer, painter and architecture and design theorist, was born in Milan in 1931. He gained international renown in the Sixties of the XX century. We will always remember his work, his colors and his playful pieces… here are just a few…
