Alessandro Mendini - Alessi - Anna Gong Etagère - AM37

Description
Alessandro Mendini - Alessi - Anna Gong Etagère - AM37
Italy - 2000-Present - Steel (stainless)

In the 1960s, Alessi launched the very popular 898 foldable étagère. The Alessi Anna Gong étagère is an ode by Alessandro Mendini to the popular product.

The gong still looks very neat, but when it is closed there are some minor signs of wear in the middle of both heads. This is caused by the "noses" touching the surface when the gong is unfolded. It is in very beautiful condition other than that.

The Anna Gong étagère by Alessi is made entirely of stainless steel and forms a beautiful sculpture in the shape of a woman's face when folded. Unfolded, it is a three-layer étagère.

Alessandro Mendini was born in Milan in 1931 .
He is an Italian designer and architect who has played an important role in the development of Italian design.
