Alessandro is a tribute to Alessandro Mendini. This special object is part of “Most Illustrious”, a token of appreciation for Italian design masters. The collection includes three-dimensional ceramic figures, finely decorated with colored enamels. Every piece combines essential traits of the designers with stylistic elements of works that made them famous. As a result, this series underlines the unique relationship between designers and their projects: “we are what we create.”
“Most Illustrious is a gift to those people that, maybe unknowingly, have given so much to my perception of design. Their commitment and their works have modelled and educated my vision and my taste. As truthful masters, they had no need to introduce themselves, to speak or to tell their ideas to stand out. The energy of their creations was sufficient to make me understand who they really were and what was their vision, proving that all designers are what they create, in the end. I had fun mixing colours, stacking objects and shapes to create a sort of tribute that, with great humility, shows my way of seeing them” said Elena Salmistraro.
