Known for his particular interest in neo-modern and contemporary design, Alessandro Mendini has amassed much recognition as a designer, architect and image consultant for many corporations creating many objects, furniture and interior installations. Mendini describes his mission as one "to communicate through my objects and work in general, trying to say things that encourage people to deepen meditation and spirituality."In the Anna G. Corkscrew, Mendini has definitely defined a new design for this common item. With all the functionality of a traditional corkscrew, Mendini has utilized all of its components to resemble the shape of a girl - Anna G. to be specific. It has been noted that this design supposedly was made to resemble Mendini's girlfriend at the time, how anthropomorphic! This piece is made from durable polyamide and chrome-plated zamak.

Très beau, mais un peu gros et il est difficile de dégager le bouchon de liège du tire-bouchon.

My husband, who has strong opinions about corkscrews (I have no idea why--Im still pulling corks with my 45 year old girl scout knife) loves using this corkscrew. I adore its whimsical anthropomorphism. We are both made very happy by this item.

Not only is this corkscrew easy to use, it is an excellent conversation piece. I always get excited when someone brings me wine because I get to show off my Alessie Anna Corkscrew! Not only is this functional, it is a piece of art on my counter. I cannot recommend it more.
