Ceramic Coffee Pot and Sugar Bowl by Alessandro Mendini for Alessi Tendentse

About

This Post-Modern coffee pot and sugar bowl is designed by Alessandro Mendini for Alessi, Tendentse in 1989. Alessi, one of Italy’s leading design firms of the 1980s and 1990s, is best known for innovative design of domestic objects made in stainless steel, silver and, more recently, in plastics. In 1989 however, Officina Alessi acquired the rights to the ‘Tendentse’ project that concerned ceramics. Initiated in 1985 by Ettore Sottsass, Adolfo Natalini, Andrea Branzi and Alessandro Mendini, the project aimed at experimental research into handmade objects and their ‘emotional content’ which could inform and inspire the design production lines. Ceramics had been selected because of the ancient origins of the medium’s forms, decorations and processes. The results of first experiments were objects forming the initial ‘Tendentse’ collection launched in 1989. This coffee pot and sugar bowl are both in perfect condition (never used!).
