Design Michael Graves, 2014
Stainless steel, silicone
Made by Alessi

The MG35 tea infuser enriches the family of objects designed by Michael Graves around his famous kettle with the bird-shaped whistle. In 1988 Graves added the first two objects of the series to the kettle, the 9096 Creamer and the 9098 sugar bowl, which were soon followed by other pieces distinctive for the same formal language. The tea infuser has a little grip that recalls the shape of the famous kettle's whistle: a bird with its wings open. The grip is made from silicone, as is the closure at the base of the cone that keeps the tea leaves in the cone during infusion. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.

Michael Graves

Michael Graves (b. 1934) is an American architect who has become a household name for his domestic products sold at Target stores. He is from Indianapolis, earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati, and earned his master’s degree from Harvard. A practicing architect since 1964, he directs the firm Michael Graves & Associates, with offices in Princeton, NJ and New York City, which has designed a wide variety of commercial and residential buildings and interiors. Graves was elected a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 1979. In 1999 Graves was awarded the National Medal of Arts, in 2001 the AIA Gold Medal, in 2010 the AIA Topaz Medal, and in 2012 the Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture. He is also a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council.
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.
