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.
