DREAMLIKE GEOMETRIES

We're introducing the new clothes of the most famous pair of corkscrews in Italian design. The attraction of the lights, colours and mosaic vaults of the small mausoleum in Ravenna, dedicated to the Roman empress Galla Placidia, has inspired Alessandro Mendini. He created an iridescent play of shapes and colours, striking for the rigour of its geometries in contrast to its vivid and dreamy hues. In this unprecedented application, the unique dress inspired by expressive art enhances the soft and delicate design of the two corkscrews.

This limited edition corkscrew is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Alessi, being part of the Values Collection.

Refined - The clothes of the two most famous design portraits in Alessi’s history are embellished with a historic decoration by Mendini that enhances their design and ability to change.

Easy to use

Place the corkscrew on the bottleneck, ensuring that the levers are in the rest position. Screw-in the corkscrew head by turning it clockwise, leaving the levers free to move into the vertical position. Lower the levers to remove the cork from the bottle. Remove the cork from the steel worm by holding the levers in the rest position and turning the head counterclockwise. The final extraction of the cork can be facilitated by bringing the levers to a vertical position.

The first twenty years of an icon

A best seller since it was first produced in 1994, the Anna G. corkscrew is a tongue-in-cheek homage to a real woman. Her smiling face has become something of a cult figure over the years, giving birth (so to speak) to a rich family of objects for the table and kitchen in a wide range of materials.
