bombé tea & coffee service
"The Bombé service is very much a product of the postwar sociocultural climate, and as such it's a specific phenomenon of the design and customs that are associated with the first age of Italian design." -Alessandro Mendini
Designed in 1945, this service was first produced in chrome-plated and silver-plated heavy brass, and later in stainless steel. The Bombé collection is still one of the most successful tea and coffee sets sold by Alessi and was Carlo Alessi's last design. The Tea & Coffee service is offered in 18/10 stainless steel, with handle and knob in bakelite. The set includes coffee pot, tea pot, milk jug, sugar bowl and oval tray.
