Alessandro Mendini 1931-2019
& collect
For Alchimia, design is a cyle: everything that will have to happen has already happened, and the imagination of the individual - the basis of the world´s survival - can roam freely in any culture and everywhere, provided it does so lovingly.

For Alchimia, design is delicate and does not impose itself, but stays beside and gently accompanies the lives and deaths of the people who like it.

- Alessandro Mendini, 1931 - 2019
