Design by Michael Graves, 1985.
By Alessi.

The head of a large and successful family of objects designed for Alessi by Graves in the 80's and 90's, this was the first product by an American designer to be included in the Alessi catalog. It opened the way for the playful design style that subsequently characterized the 90's. And, thanks to an inspired mix of post-modern and pop idioms, it has become one of the internationally recognized icons of the 80's. An Alessi best seller since 1985, this product has sold the greatest number of units in the history of the company.

Material(s): Handle And Small Bird-Shaped Whistle In Pa With Magnetic Stainless Steel Heat Diffusing Bottom

Dimensions: 8.9" H x 8.7" D; Capacity 2.1 qt.

Model(s): ALS-9093 9093

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Whistling Kettle I previously owned this kettle for two years but had to get a mew one one when I accidentally forgot about the original one as it boiled away on the stove for too long. As a result, the plastic bird whistle and sphere on the lid melted; the inside bottom of the kettle turned black; and the outside bottom of the kettle turned a copper-color. I love this kettle so much that I bought a second one--this time from YLiving. It took a few weeks to ship, but it was worth the wait! I'll never leave it on the stove for too long every again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a work of art. A kettle sits on the stove and can be used to heat water but this one is a work of art to please anyone even while it is not being used. Functionally it does the job but be sure to take the spout bird off carefully and perhaps with hand protection. Visually, I just look its looks.
