Mendini's Nuremberg birthday party

A renowned designer achieving the grand old age of 80 is reason enough to engage him in a little chat. Alessandro Mendini has been designing for many decades now, yet his manner remains the same — working on his ideas and trying to stay updated on today’s world instead of concentrating on the past. According to him, the future is a  humanistic and literary utopia. An inspiring guy.
