    Time According To Alessandro Mendini And His Artisans

Heavenly objects crafted by the inimitable Alessandro Mendini and his Artisans

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Speaking from the perspective of a chronic hoarder, I can definitely confirm that the world needs beautiful objects. One of the world’s most skilled beautiful object makers is Italian design mastermind Alessandro Mendini. Together with his most trusted craftsmen, Alessandro has produced a heart-stoppingly laboured-over exhibition based around the small topic of time. The level of intense craftsmanship and honed skill is pretty breathtaking, made all the more impressive by the beautiful making-of shots of the objects.

“These days we don’t have time, and these thirteen works are just the kind of objects that take a great deal of it. That is why making them is meant as a demonstration. In the case in point, they speak about the beauty of works that are created, not to meet a specific goal, but as an end in themselves, and they demonstrate the existence of spaces that offer infinite possibilities in the areas that lie midway between art, craftsmanship and design, beyond their exclusive domains.”
