The Alessi website calls this cute corkscrew “a tongue-in-cheek homage to a real woman.” However, the curator of “The Main Dish“ exhibition, Erica Warren, suggests a more literal translation involving the objectification of women: “She’s got her smiling face. Always ready to open that bottle of wine for you.” What do you think?

Anna G.” Corkscrew, 1994, designed by Alessandro Mendini and made by Alessi, S.p.A.
