Daring Desk and More from Alessandro Mendini

Alessandro Mendini, the famed Italian designer who died in 2019, is speaking to us from the beyond with Porro’s recent debut of Linea, a new collection curated by Fulvia and Elisa Mendini, “from research into the Alessandro Mendini archive resulting in the rediscovery of pieces with a timeless design.”

We are thus given three new pieces: the compact console/bureau pictured above, a corresponding open-style version in yellow, and the prescient convertible cupboard/desk in red.

With their Mondrian-inspired palette, rigorously geometrical composition/decoration, and textural inlaid surfaces, Linea is light and bright, evocative and dynamic—pragmatic pieces that provoke artistic curiosity and inspire a child-like joie de vivre.
