9091 Kettle by Richard Sapper for Alessi


The 9091 was Alessi's first designer kettle, ushering in a long and successful tradition. The central element in the design is the brass whistle which, when the steam exits, produces a sound like a train whistle. Richard Sapper wanted to avoid the usual anxiety-generating noise produced by other kettles then on the market, and by following this exquisitely poetic philosophy he produced what is probably the first multi-sensory object for the kitchen.

Kettle in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished with melodic whistle in brass and handle in PA, black. Magnetic steel heat diffusing bottom.

7.5" H X 6.5" Diameter; 2 qt 3.75 oz capacity
