Design by Michael Graves, 1985.
By Alessi.

Alessi is celebrating their 90th Anniversary with special editions of their best known designs, produced in a limited edition with a special stamp and anniversary packaging.

This was the first product by an American designer to be included in the Alessi catalog. It opened the way for the playful design style that subsequently characterized the 1990's. And, thanks to an inspired mix of post-modern and pop idioms, it has become one of the most recognized icons of the 1980's.

An Alessi best seller since 1985, this product has sold the greatest number of units in the history of the company.

The 9093 Kettle designed by Michael Graves for Alessi (1985) is an internationally recognized icon of the 1980's.

Michael Graves

Designer: Michael Graves

Michael Graves was an American architect, designer, and one of the principal figures in the Postmodernist movement. Born in Indianapolis, he began teaching architecture at Princeton in 1962. Identified as one of The New York Five, as well as the Memphis Group, Graves was known first for his contemporary building designs and some prominent public commissions that became iconic examples of Postmodern architecture. His powerful and energetic architectural works include the Portland Building, the Humana Building, the expansion of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Newark Museum. In the 1980's Graves designed a series of playful household items for the Italian design company Alessi. The series included his best-selling and iconic kettle, 9093 Bird Kettle which expanded his recognition beyond architecture. In 2001 Graves was awarded the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal (AIA) for lifetime achievement.

Manufacturer: Alessi

Alessi is a family owned Italian design company, founded in 1921. Giovanni Alessi, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. He was later joined by his son Carlo who was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s and early 1940s. In the mid 1940s Alessi began to work with outside designers. The current Alessi catalog is the result of a collaboration with over 500 designers from all over the world.

"A true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories, to surprise, to go against the grain. From this point of view, design intended to conjure up images in people's minds, which makes them a bit happier, still has tremendous potential." — Alberto Alessi
