Neapolitan Coffee Maker

from Alessi

neapolitan coffee maker

neapolitan coffee maker

Design Riccardo Dalisi, 1987
18/10 stainless steel, Canaletto walnut
Made in Italy by Alessi

The design of the Neapolitan coffee maker was one of the most complex and lengthy in Alessi's history: over the years it resulted in a book and over two hundred prototypes, all working. Riccardo Dalisi brought his conceptual experience of high craftsmanship to Alessi, blending matter-of-fact industry with fragility and poetry: perhaps the best choice for working with ancient domestic rituals.

Riccardo Dalisi is an architect, born in Potenza in 1931, he teaches architectural planning, Industrial design and is the director of the Institute for Industrial Design at the University of Neaples, Federico II. He was among the founders of the Global Tool group and of an experimental school of craftsmanship called Arti minime. In 1975 he started working as a designer and collaborated with companies such as Baleri and Zanotta. He was awarded the Compasso d'Oro prize in 1981 and has published several books.

Neapolitan coffee maker is offered in 18/10 stainless steel, with handle and knob in Canaletto walnut.

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.
