From Art Deco to Pop Art: this kettle has it all

The stainless steel 18/10 9093 kettle is characterised by a bird-shaped whistle: designed by Michael Graves by applying his own visual language that fuses influences from Art Deco to Pop Art to contemporary cartoon, it has become one of the icons of contemporary design.

The 9093 kettle, with bird-shaped whistle is one of the best-selling Alessi objects in the world. The design of this kettle, created by Michael Graves in 1985, mixes the influences taken from European Art, American Pop and quotes from pre-Columbian cultures. Graves's unique visual language is the reason behind the extraordinary success that the kettle has had since the year of its production. It is a smart object, elegant, but at the same time playful and fun: when the water starts boiling, the bird sings, leading to an inevitable smile.
