The World of Alessandro Mendini

Now to Tuesday 5 May 2020

Following the guidelines of the RIVM (Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) and the Dutch Museums Association, the Groninger Museum will be closed until further notice.

Twenty-five years after the opening of the Groninger Museum building he designed, Alessandro Mendini (1931–2019) was given free rein to put together his dream exhibition. Shortly before his death earlier this year, the grand old man of Italian design selected dozens of his own revolutionary designs as well as works by numerous other artists and designers. Mendini passionately believed in collaboration between creative spirits and the importance of imagination. Mondo Mendini is a colourful, dazzling riot of fine art, design and architecture.
