Mario Bellini In-Depth Review

By our senior writer: Donna Martinez

I've been waiting to write this article for a long time. But today I actually get to review the Mario Bellini! I, Donna Martinez, write about home and garden products for a living as a writer, blogger and reviewer and you have probably read my pieces about the Cupture Classic Candy Insulated Tumbler with Lid and Straw, 16 oz, Pack of 12 (Assorted Colors) by Cupture and the Insulated Lunch Box Sleeve - Securely Cover Your Bento Box - Kitty Design by Bentology. I also did an editorial piece on the STACKABLE RAMEKIN RED. Needless to say, I have quite some experience testing home and garden products and I only want the best to my readers of course. So I was really thrilled when I got this product to write about today!

Introduction

I've been a fan of Artemide products1 for years and I was really looking forward to finally trying the Mario Bellini and reviewing it for you guys. I found the best deal on this site on Walmart (You can buy the Mario Bellini here.) and I didn't hesitate a moment. So I reached for my creditcard and bought one straight away. I was glad it had free shipping and 24 hours delivery when I ordered it because I couldn't wait! When my Mario Bellini arrived the next day I ripped open the packaging and was really happy with what I saw. As I said before I'm a huge Artemide enthusiast but I can be very critical and objective too, especially when writing for my readers. :-) After testing it for about a week now I am confident that I have the authority to write this piece. So read on and I will tell you all about my findings and if you should buy this thing.

Summary

When reviewing home and garden products I usually begin with a summary, then a compact list of the pros and cons of the product after which you can find the rating and my conclusion and resources. So as you can read in the intro, I am really amazed by the Mario Bellini. Artemide has really set a new standard with this one. The durability is fantastic, and frankly; it just looks super. I know looks aren't deciding with home and garden products, but it just needs to be addressed. I mean the price Walmart offered was and is by far the lowest so make sure to check them out when you are going to get one. As I have tested some alternatives before, I will say none come close to the Mario Bellini. Just the flexibility alone crumbles all competition and the quality also seems to be top notch. The famous customer service of Artemide2 is always very happy to help if you have any kind of questions so if you ever run in to something with their products they'll be really supple with helping you find a solution. So just to recap; only positive things to say about the Mario Bellini. Do read till the end tho because you there is a tiny surprise!

Pros

This pros list of the Mario Bellini could be much longer, and is way longer than the conslist, but the description3 this site has will probably already say it all. Here is just a little piece: "

The first comprehensive monograph on Mario Bellini, one of Italy's most versatile and influential designers.

A key figure in the emergence of Italy as an important centre fore design in the 1960's, Mario Bellini is renowned for his elegant, dramatic and often poetic designs for, among others, Olivetti, Cassina, B&B Italia, Vitra and Artemide. He was the subject of a one man retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in". So without further ado, this is the very much incomplete list:

  1. Mario Bellini
  2. First Comprehensive Monograph
  3. Key Figure
  4. Subject
  5. One Man Retrospective
  6. Museum
  7. Modern Art
  8. Recipient
  9. Series
  10. Essays
  11. Interview
  12. Various Aspects
  13. Career
  14. The amazing looks.
  15. The quality is great.
  16. It is everything it promises to be.
  17. $69.86 is just a steal comparing to the alternatives.
  18. There is no brand like Artemide when it comes to home and garden products.
  19. The durability is very nice, so better for the environment.
  20. In this price range, no other product coming out will be matching the Mario Bellini for a long time to come.

Cons

I had a tough time thinking of cons for the Mario Bellini. Better prices are of course always nice and I don't know if you actually need this luxurious quality4. That's a thing only you can figure out for yourself. However, the list:

  1. Maybe the aesthetics of the product are not your style.
  2. It's a premium product so chances are you don't need this abundance of quality.
  3. The Mario Bellini is loved by a lot of professionals so soon everybody will probably have one.

Best Artemide product in years

Rating

Considering the points above I can only conclude that the Mario Bellini deserves 5 stars, 10/10 an A+++ and just overall praise5. I've read reviews by people saying that it's a little too perfect and that it doesn't leave room for the competition, but I don't really mind a nice monopoly. And Artemide sure is heading to become one with this product!

★★★★★

Verdict and Conclusion

In conclusion, my verdict is that the Mario Bellini really will make your life more fun and just better altogether. (And did I mention the resale value6 of Artemide products?) I've done my utmost to view this thing from all possible angles in this piece but I see it sounds all very positive. So please read some more reviews, and you'll see that it's not me that is so enthusiast. So let me just say is that I fully, fully, recommend the Mario Bellini for now and the future until Artemide will come up with its successor. And if you are still hesitating whether you want this new Mario Bellini. Walmart really has a great deal on it now. They have the Mario Bellini on sale HERE for the record low of $69.86. But enough reading. Just go get it and admire your very own, very new Mario Bellini!
