The design of this coffee maker was one of the most complex and lengthy in Alessi's history: over the years it resulted in a book and over two hundred prototypes, all working. Riccardo Dalisi brought his conceptual experience of high craftsmanship to Alessi, blending matter-of-fact industry with fragility and poetry: perhaps the best choice for working with ancient domestic rituals.
