Design by Richard Sapper, 1979.
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.
The 9090/6 is a six-cup espresso coffee maker in 18/10 stainless steel with a cast iron handle. "9090" was the first "amphibious" Alessi design, meaning that it is suitable for the kitchen but attractive enough to be used directly at the table.
Selected for the Permanent Design Collection at the MoMA, and recipient of the Compasso d'Oro award (1979).

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 AlessiView other products from Alessi
