Moka Espresso Coffee Maker

moka espresso coffee maker

Design David Chipperfield, 2018
Aluminum casting, PA
Made by Alessi

"The Moka coffee pot has established itself as a generic object. Like a bottle opener, a pair of spectacles, or scissors, it has become a familiar item of the everyday. It has assumed its rightful place in the kitchen and the rituals of daily life. Its character is defined not only by its friendly silhouette, but also by its soft dull grey aluminum materiality and the agreeable grinding noise that accompanies the simple mechanical screwing and unscrewing of its body. How amazing that this complex and well-performing object has become readable and comprehensible, a machine that needs no instruction and no invitation to be part of domestic life. How can one redesign it? Perhaps only by making it more of what it already is." -David Chipperfield

Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombe, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.

Ode to Coffee and Bialetti's Moka
, more than a month ago.
As we come closer together as a more interconnected and interdependent world, including our joint and growing coffee cultures, the Moka Espresso Coffee Maker in all of its different design expressions has come to represent both the highest artisanal form of coffee making, as much as it has been since its creation in 1933, a household item reminiscent of moms and mornings all over the globe.

Alessi continues to pay homage to Bialetti together with some of the world's best designers and architects, in this latest collaboration with world-renowned architect David Chipperfield.

As Alberto Alessi has said himself, “a true design work must move people, convey emotions, bring back memories, surprise, and go against common thinking.” This coffee maker brings back the best of memories, reminds us of our joint humanity, shared histories, the universality of great design, as it conjures the beauty, simplicity and efficiency found in nature's divine proportions.
