Plissé - this product's very name declares the sculptural nature of its design: like a fabric that a thick pleating transforms into a three-dimensional shape, this kettle is reminiscent of an haute couture dress.
Designed by Michele De Lucchi and made of thermoplastic resin, the Plissé kettle combines functional aspects with a plastic and fascinating design that reveals the creator's architectural background, as well as his passion for the handicraft and for sculpture.
