9091 FM Kettle

Designed by:  Richard Sapper
Manufactured by:  Alessi

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 that is suitable for induction cooking.  Manufactured by Alessi.

Designed in 1983.
6.5" Diameter, 7.5" H, 2 qt 3.75 oz

Alessi

Founded in 1921, Alessi is one of Italy’s leading manufacturers of home accessories, collaborating with designers and architects to create functional objects that are designed to delight and often challenge preconceived notions of how an object can look. Alessi began as a producer of brass and nickel sheet metal and by the 1950s had repositioned itself as a specialist in manipulating stainless steel. By the 1970s and 1980s, Alessi was collaborating with Ettore Sottsass, Aldo Rossi, Achille Castiglioni, Michael Graves, Phillipe Starck, and Richard Sapper – creating design icons that are still produced today.  Today Alessi works with hundreds of artists, industrial designers, and architects to create its core collection – flatware, dinnerware, glassware, cookware, office, clocks, watches, and virtually every type of tabletop or kitchen accessory imaginable. Supplementing its vast core offering, Alessi presents two seasonal collections every year that highlight new designers and typologies. Alessi’s designs are included in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. Switch Modern not only shows well over 1,000 Alessi designs on our website, we also have the same commitment to stocking and presentation in our large Alessi-branded store in Atlanta.
