Design Michele de Lucchi, 2019
Thermoplastic resin
Made by Alessi

"The Plisse kettle's shape is defined by its folds, a technique that is quite old but still very much in use today. With the skillful and creative use of pleating, fashion designers shape fabrics and create clothes like sculptural works of art. Plisse was shaped starting from a folded sheet of paper, then developed and produced by Alessi as if it were a beautiful sartorial object. The folds five from to the shape, they structure it, because a form without folds is only a volume without form. The folds transform simple two-dimensional sheets into three-dimensional objects." -Michele De Lucchi

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.
