A&W Architektur & Wohnen celebrates its 60th birthday with a glamorous cocktail party and honors Alessandro Mendini as A&W Designer of the Year 2017
What a celebration! Glasses filled with champagne, walls adorned with the most beautiful photos out of A&W Architektur & Wohnen and an Italian design legend on stage: 150 invited guests experienced a glamorous evening at Martina Kaiser Gallery in Cologne last Sunday. With an exclusive cocktail party, A&W, the premium magazine from Hamburg's Jahreszeiten Verlag which translates to Architecture and Living, celebrated its 60th birthday and, at the same time, A&W Designer of the Year 2017, Alessandro Mendini.

A&W, which appeared for the first time as a Film & Frau magazine special in 1957, demonstrates with this anniversary that it is “both timeless and contemporary,” as A&W Chief Editor Gabriele Thiels emphasized in her welcoming speech, and continued that it is “a success story founded upon competence, a sense of style, a keen nose for trends, and teamwork”. “I'm inspired by the surprising, excellently written, out-of-the-box stories,” explains actress and Tatort Commissioner Sabine Postel, who held a very personal speech in honor of the magazine. Alessandro Mendini received a long round of applause. The Milan-based designer and poet was honored as A&W's Designer of the Year 2017 and created an entire supplement for A&W.

“The award is a great honor for me,” said the 85 year-old and one of the most influential figures of Italian design. He expressed his gratitude with, as he called it, a design poem: 45 different, humorously enigmatic definitions of a chair. A memorable moment. For the Mentor Award, Mendini nominated young jewelry designer Francesca Giacomelli, to whom A&W dedicates an extensive portrait in issue 4/2017. Germany's trendsetting magazine for living, design and architecture from Hamburg's Jahreszeiten Verlag appears bimonthly. A&W ARCHITEKTUR & WOHNEN issue 01/2017 including the supplement designed by Alessandro Mendini is available in stores for 8.90 euros. © // 2 files // show complete blog
