ALESSANDRO MENDINI 'STILEMA TRE ROSSO' CAP

501STLM

Stilema Tre is the product of a very special collaboration with the late Italian Architect and Designer Alessandro Mendini for the Cinelli Art Program.

“I have often thought about my design as a system of signs, some simple, others complex, intertwining and infinitely developed on my objects, houses, furnishings and surfaces. Visual alphabets, signs, colors, images, decorative features, always similar but always different, in a continuous, endless movement, on large and small scales, in two or three dimensions. Research on the graphic effect of written vision, almost literary, where alphabets converge in the construction of true visual languages. Being languages, each of these expressive systems is a closed game in its own right, corresponding to precise rules. The stories and letters of these ‘expressive alphabets’ should not, however, be understood as a symbolic construct where the meanings are preordained. Quite the opposite: the signs contribute to create the inscription of the vision, and should be seen almost as pre-linguistic elements, still not constrained by the obligation to have a specific meaning. They are suspended meanings, waiting for their destiny to indicate their function.” (Alessandro Mendini, Stilemi, 2007)

Born in Milan, Alessandro Mendini was one of the main faces of the radical design movement during the late 1960s. He made his mark as a designer and an architect with his strong interest for mixing cultures and forms of expression-- from graphics, furniture, paintings, and in writing. He has directed the magazines Casabella, Modo and Domus. He was also awarded the Compasso d’Oro for design (1974, 1981, 2014), The Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres in France, the Architectural League of New York and the Laurea Honoris Causa at the universities in Mila, Paris, Wroclaw, and Seoul. His work is found in various museums and private collections.
