ossidiana stovetop espresso coffee maker

Design Mario Trimarchi, 2014
Aluminum casting, thermoplastic resin
Made by Alessi

Fully aware of an object's narrative ability, Sicilian architect Mario Trimarchi has designed the "Ossidiana" espresso coffee maker. Like his other projects, this one is based on memories and fragments of images, told through the form of an article. Ossidiana embraces the memory of the various sides of the traditional moka coffee pot and those of obsidian, the volcanic stone it is named after.

Ossidiana espresso coffee maker is offered in 1, 3 or 5 cup sizes. It features an aluminum casting with black thermoplastic resin handle and knob. The 3-cup version can also be specified in black.

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.
