Alessandro Mendini's "Enigma" stool combines the shape of a dumbbell or a cheerful diabolo with the design of a chequered flag - the waving of this chequered flag, which announces the arrival of the winner. The piece is made of high-gloss lacquer. As often in Mendini's work, we find the mischievous spirit of the designer, humour, colour, ambivalence, fantasy and diversity of styles. "Since prehistoric times, people have been telling the story of their lives by decorating their objects. The decorated object responds to its function but it transmits something else, which escapes the function as well as the theory, and which only concerns immediate emotion " A.M. Limited edition of 8 pieces + 2 A.P. + 2 Prototypes Numbered & signed pieces.
