Italian architect and designer Alessandra Mendini injected new meaning or new perspective into everyday objects such as furniture or homewares, a method that the Italian artist referred to as “re-design.” Nowhere is this more evident than trinket tray in the shape of a handgun he designed for hipper-than-thou streetwear company Supreme for S/S 16. And Mendini’s 1980’s cubist approach to the illustration and typically colorful palate make this gun anything but grim.
