Virgil Abloh Alessi 3909 Kettle

by Michael Graves from Alessi

virgil abloh alessi 3909 kettle

Design Michael Graves with Virgil Abloh, 1985 / 2022
Stainless steel, polyamide
Made in Italy by Alessi

"I'm fascinated by the idea that a human connection can be triggered through inanimate devices." - Virgil Abloh

The 3909 kettle mixes different cultural aspects: the phenomenon of basketball and its multicultural imagery, an integral part of Abloh's personal history, with the world of design and its codified references. The whistle is completely redesigned, taking the form of a basketball player who crushes with power to the basket, while the colors of the handle and the knob are lit with an intense purple.

Virgil Abloh rose to international acclaim with his unique approach to fashion and design. Known for his brand work through fashion icon Off-White, he often collaborated with artists and makers such as Vitra and Alessi.

The famous Michael Graves kettle was the first product by an American designer to be included in the Alessi catalog. It opened the way for the playful design style that subsequently characterized the Nineties and thanks to an inspired mix of post-modern and pop idioms, it has become one of the internationally recognized icons of the Eighties. An Alessi best seller since 1985, this is actually the product that has sold the greatest number of units in the entire history of Alessi.
