Design Michele de Lucchi, 2019
Thermoplastic resin, stainless steel
Made by Alessi

In 2018, Michele De Lucchi created the "Plisse", a kettle with a decidedly plastic and sculptural shape that quickly caught the public's interest. With its pleated design reminiscent of a haute couture dress, a beautiful object shaped by a designer, "Plisse" soon established itself as a new icon in our domestic landscape. Continuing to explore the expressive possibilities offered by the surface shaped by a dense series of folds, De Lucchi has created a small collection of household appliances, flanking the first kettle with a juicer, a blender, a toaster and a hand blender.

- The outer shell is made from thermoplastic resin while the internal parts are made from stainless steel.
- The two stainless steel tongs have grips made from thermoplastic resin which match the colour of the toaster shell; they allow slices of bread to be easily inserted into and removed from the toaster.
-The 6 browning levels can be easily adjusted with the relevant button.
- The reheat function allows the bread to be returned to the required temperature within 30 seconds.
- The defrost function allows bread to be thawed before toasting begins.
- The "bagel" function allows just one side of the bread to be toasted.
- The stop function automatically ejects the tongs with the bread.
- The cable is integrated: after use, it can be wound up under the base of toaster.
- The base is non-slip, ensuring safe use.
- Easy to clean. We recommend cleaning the tongs under running water and with non-abrasive soap.
- The crumb tray can be easily pulled out like a drawer.
- Electrical power: 850 watt.
- Available in packaging made from recycled cardboard which features a reproduction of the original sketch by the author.
- It is available in four color versions: red, grey, white and matt black. The housing and power cable are the same color.
- The tongs are sold separately.
- An object with an elegant design: the colors chosen by the author and the pleated surface offer ample reason why it is a real eye-catcher on any kitchen work surface.

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.

Review of Plisse Toaster
, less than a month ago.
We first saw it at Etaly in Manhattan and was impressed by the way it works. We purchased it thru Hive and we love our equipment. It makes life much easy and matches the other kitchen equipment we have.
