Designer: Richard Sapper
A Richard Sapper Classic
This kettle was Alessi's first designer kettle, heralding a new season of kettle ideas for ourselves as well as many other kettle 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. Sapper wanted to avoid giving the kettles whistle the usual irksome sound of the other kettles on the market. And this purely musical requirement led to what I think can be described as Alessis first multi-sensorial design.
Made in 18/10 Mirror Polished stainless Steel, with melodic whistle in brass and handle in PA, black.
This version (9091 FM) contains a magnetic base, making it suitable for Gas, Electric and Induction cook tops.
Please note Earlier models, 9091, do not have the magnetic base.
This object appeared in the movies: Generazione 1000 euro (Generazione 1000 euro, M.Venier, 2008); Niente da nascondere (Caché, M.Haneke, 2005).
Please be reminded to read the instructions and check the maximum water level suitable for the kettle before using for the first time.
