Design by Michael Graves, 1985.
By Alessi.

The head of a large and successful family of objects designed for Alessi by Graves in the 80's and 90's, 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 internationally recognized icons of the 80's. An Alessi best seller since 1985, this product has sold the greatest number of units in the history of the company.

Made of 18/10 mirror-polished stainless steel with magnetic stainless steel heat diffusing bottom. Select Blue or Black handle and small bird-shaped whistle.

Alessi. Art and Poetry.

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

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.

Must the bird be removed to pour out boiling water ?

Asked by: Bertha
Thank you for your question. The Bird Kettle is one of the most popular (and most fun) items we carry! After the bird whistles and lets you know that the water is boiling, you remove the kettle from the heat. You then remove the bird cap, and can pour the hot water freely. Please let us know if you have any further questions or need assistance with your product choices. Brian, YLiving Customer Support 866-842-6209
