Mendini/Bisazza

My new article from Cool Hunting

On the occasion of Milan’s ongoing Design Week, Bisazza pays homage to Alessandro Mendini with an exhibition at La Triennale di Milano. In celebration of more than twenty years of collaboration between the Italian mosaic tile company and the design master, the display features large-size works and installations from the Fondazione Bisazza and a loan from the Fondation Cartier in Paris.

Over the years, Bisazza and Alessandro Mendini have shared a creative dialogue stemming from a cultural and aesthetic affinity that have resulted in several works of art and installations. Curated and designed by Atelier Mendini, the more than 400-square-meter exhibit gathers iconic and gigantic sculptures, mostly covered with golden mosaic.

On the occasion of the exhibition, the book “Mosaico Mendini,” written by Stefano Casciani and published by Skira Editore, has been launched. The volume aims to trace all works designed by Mendini with Bisazza mosaics, including those commissioned by others, such as the Torre del Paradiso (Tower of Paradise) of Hiroshima, the Groninger Museum, and the metro lines in Naples.
