9091 FM Kettle
This kettle was our first designer kettle, heralding a new season of ideas for ourselves as well as many other manufacturers. The true heart of this design is the brass whistle whose pipes sing two notes, mi and si, when the steam blows through them, giving a particularly attractive melody. Designer Richard Sapper wanted to avoid giving the kettle's whistle the usual irksome sound of the others on the market. And this purely musical requirement led to what can be described as Alessi's first multi-sensory design. Kettle in 18/10 stainless steel with melodic whistle in brass and PA handle, black. Magnetic steel heat diffusing bottom. Manufactured by Alessi.
Designed in 1983.
6.5" Diameter, 7.5" H, 2 qt 3.75 oz
