'Mobili per Uomo' ('Furniture for Man') by Alessandro Mendini for Bisazza, 1997–2008

In the second of our series of four interviews with four leading design figures from this year’s Milan Furniture Fair, Architonic meets Alessandro Mendini – designer, architect, writer, theorist and all-round provocateur. Mendini, who turns 80 this year, discusses, among other things, the importance of irony, the increasing lack of polemic in design, and why certain detractors of the 1980s postmodern Memphis movement might be talking ‘bullshit’.
