The exhibit titled 'Time According to Alessandro Mendini and His Artisans' is comprised of 13 objects, each of which are as different from each other as a flurry of snowflakes. The different materials and techniques used for each sculpture informed the look and shape they would take, hence the creative diversity.

Part of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Milan, Italy, Time According to Alessandro Mendini and His Artisans showcases the cooperative relationships that exist among art, design and artistic crafts through quirky handmade objects. By opening such a visual dialogue, the exhibit showcases a level of craftsmanship that is breathtaking.

Medini himself proclaims, "These days we don’t have time, and these thirteen works are just the kind of objects that take a great deal of it. That is why making them is meant as a demonstration."
