Following Alessi’s acquisition of the ‘Tendentse’ project, experiments focussed on the ceramic vase. In 1992, the firm released ten thousand vases from the ‘The 100% make-up’ series which formed a spectacular highlight of the ‘Tendentse’ collection.

All vases were wheel-thrown and cast in white porcelain to one basic design by Alessandro Mendini. Identical in form, colour and material, they began their life as most of mass-produced objects do. The similarity ended there however, as the vases were then decorated with one hundred different designs commissioned from one hundred artists, architects and designers from Europe, Africa, Asia and America. Each design was copied on one hundred vases, each vase being individually numbered and marked with names of all contributing designers.

As the only retailer in Australia to import this series at the time Ross held onto this one which has now become a collectors item.
