Founded in 1921 as a "Workshop for the processing of brass and nickel silver sheet metal, with foundry", Alessi
has always stood out for the high quality of its products. In almost a century of history, the company has gradually evolved to become one of the leading "Factories of Italian design", capable of applying its expertise and excellence in design management to many different product types.
Espresso coffee maker in 18/10 stainless steel, mirror polished. Designed between 1980 and 1983, this coffee maker began life as an evolution of the Tea & Coffee Piazza project, which saw famous architects taking up the challenge of designing a tea and coffee service. It was Rossi's first mass-produced design, and its strongly iconic image earned it immediate success for the then-new Officina Alessi brand, as well as becoming an 1980s design symbol.
