Overview

Design by Alessandro Mendini, 2011.
By Alessi.

The Alessandro M. Merry Boy corkscrew was selected as the 2011 symbol for "The Dream Factory" project, a partnership between Alessi and the International AIBI - Amici dei Bambini. The Dream Factory was launched in 2006 with the aim — just like Santa Claus — of making dreams come true for children that are being raised in orphanages in many countries around the world.

This year the project focuses on tiny babies still too young to have real wishes of their own, apart from the unique and imperative one of wanting to stay with their mothers. For them, the first Mother-Child Community, managed by Amici dei Bambini, will be built in the Milan area in 2011. It will be a protected, safe place where new moms in need will be welcomed with their little ones.

Merry Boy is hand-decorated in green, white and red, the colors of Italy. Arrives in gift-packaging.

Alessi

Manufacturer: Alessi

Alessi is a family owned Italian design company, founded in 1921. Giovanni Alessi, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. He was later joined by his son Carlo who was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s and early 1940s. In the mid 1940s Alessi began to work with outside designers. The current Alessi catalog is the result of a collaboration with over 500 designers from all over the world.

"A true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories, to surprise, to go against the grain. From this point of view, design intended to conjure up images in people's minds, which makes them a bit happier, still has tremendous potential." — Alberto Alessi
