Design by Richard Sapper, 1979.
By Alessi.

The "9090" is a classic design.

"9090" was the first "amphibious" Alessi design, meaning that it is suitable for the kitchen but attractive enough to be used directly at the table. It is part of the Permanent Design Collection at the MoMA and has won the Compasso d'Oro award. Available in four sizes. Mirror-polished finish. Delivered in gift packaging.

Dimensions: 1- 6" H x 3.7" D 3- 7" H x 4" D 6- 8" H x 5" D

He is considered one of the most iconic designers of his generation and his products typically feature a combination of technical innovation, simplicity of form and an element of wit and surprise. After beginning as a designer in the styling department at Mercedez-Benz, Sapper eventually opened his own studio in 1959 where many of his most prolific designs were created. Sapper has received numerous international design awards, including 10 prestigious Compasso d'Oro awards and the Raymond Loewy Foundation's Lucky Strike award.

Alessi - Italian Design

The Alessi company was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921 in Omegna, Italy. Giovanni, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and the home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. Giovanni's son Carlo, trained in industrial design, joined him at Alessi and was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s through the mid 1940s.

During the war years, Alessi produced stars for uniforms and mechanical parts for Savoia Marchetti airplanes. After the war, thanks to an enormous demand for brass ladles for the U.S. army, the Alessis expanded the company and started mass production. Carlo's brother Ettore, who joined the company in 1945, was the first to bring outside designers to the company, such as the architects Carlo Mazzeri, Luigi Massoni and Anselmo Vitale. Since that time, the range of products offered by Alessi has expanded to include such items as office accessories and electrical appliances, in collaboration with a growing range of contemporary designers such as Jasper Morrison and Philippe Starck, all the while maintaining Alessi's commitment to design and quality.

stylish and functional
 

Before we purchased our "9090" Espresso Coffee Maker, we owned one of those classic aluminum espresso maker. The old one made great espresso, but we wanted to upgrade it to something that's stylish and is made of stainless steels. The "9090" Espresso Coffee Maker not only looks great in our kitchen, but also functional. Before we used it, I was worried that it might not work well. But to my surprise, it's so perfectly designed that it works better than the old one. We are very pleased with this product.

Great coffee maker
 

Not only is the design of this coffee maker great, but the coffee is too. In no time at all, you can have a perfect espresso or "American" coffee and clean the maker in a matter of seconds. I chose this product after having tried many others also because it's one of the few top stainless steel coffee makers. I liked it so much that I bought other sizes. You won't be disappointed!

Elegant looking and easy to use.
 

The Sapper not only makes delicious espresso, but it is a joy to use and looks great as part of the kitchen.

More is more
 

This is a wonderful product. Near flawless in its design. I only wish I had purchased the larger 6-cup version as the 3-cup version only makes 2 cups at best.

Great but difficult to find parts
 

I've used it for years. I agree with all comments above in terms of beauty and functionality; It is actually a piece of art. I regret, however, not being able to get some parts.

Xlnt Design, Xlnt Performance, Small Output
 

We chose the Alessi espresso maker to replace another made of aluminum. Stainless steel is the only way to go. Visually, the Alessi has nice clean lines. It is also easy to use, and clean. We had just one concern: capacity. After seeing the 3 cup version, we opted for the 6 cup size, which is comparable in capacity to our former espresso maker. Couldn't be happier.

Worth every penny.
 

Unique design is far better than others. Stainless steel better than cheaper aluminum. the single cup makes exactly that, an espresso sized single cup. so really like a half a cup, keep in mind
