The Italian design house Alessi is known throughout the world for its unique and artistic creations. Sometimes startling and always beautifully made, the brand’s creations showcase a stylish take on form and function.
Coffee, as it is throughout the world, is something held incredibly dear to most Italians. As such, it is not surprising that Alessi puts forward its customary artful modernism in the production of coffee makers and cups.
Sure to make a striking impression in the kitchen while also making the perfect cup, the label’s coffee items are ideal for all lovers of the drink.
Here at Dotmaison we love how well Alessi bring out the essential coolness associated with a good cup of coffee. The following all go some way to combining modern design with the best ways to brew, filter and percolate.
The above Alessi Pulcina Espresso Coffee Maker, 1 Cup is a lovely example of the company’s brilliant design style. Made in collaboration with the famous Trieste based coffee company Illy, the coffee pot features a distinctive hourglass shape and a classic way to pressurise the air ready for passing the water through the filter without boiling.
Offering a pure and more intense flavour, the maker is made from cast iron aluminium for a resilient and long lasting production.
A classic everyday espresso is always on the cards with the Alessi Moka Espresso Coffee Maker.
Perfect for offering to guests after a lunch or at any time, the coffee maker offers a stylish way to make the drink easily and in style. Made from solid aluminium with a thermoplastic resin handle, the design is graphical update on the classic rounded Moka.
The trademark unique Alessi visual style is underlined in the design for the Barkoffee Press Filter. Adding an extra touch of luxury to filter coffee, the coffee press is great for those who like the longer Americano cup of coffee. The Michel Boucquillon and Donia Maaoui designed maker is sure to wow guests and friends.
Inspired by the natural patterns of bark on the trees that surround the designers studio, the press filter is a captivating way to make a great cup of coffee.
Coffee presses and other hot drinks usually rely on the boiling of a kettle. Alessi also have this covered with the distinctive Alessi Plisee Electric 1.7 Litre Electric Kettle.
Offering an architecturally inspired style of pleated design, the kettle makes a striking addition to a kitchen’s equipment. Another fantastic Alessi creation that combines reliable function with a marvellous look.
