Alessandro Mendini was one of the leading forces behind the Studio Alchimia and joined as a partner in 1979. He worked with Ettore Sottsass. One of his designs is seen below. The Kandissa Mirror is composed of geometrical shapes, arranged randomly. ‘Eye catching’, vivid colours are also prominent.

THE ATROPO OCCASIONAL TABLE - ALESSANDRO MENDINI
(1984)
 
This is an unusual table. The legs appear to be turned on a lathe from natural wood. However, this is deceptive as they are made of painted aluminium.

The table top is hand painted, composed of a selection of geometrical shapes and a subtle colour scheme.
