Design by Aldo Rossi, 1986.
The Alessi 9094 Press Filter Coffee Maker was designed for those people who like to prepare their coffee using the method that is now particularly common in Northern Europe and America. The press filter coffee maker, or hand-pressed filter coffee maker, was first conceived in Italy in the 1920's. It makes coffee that has a very particular flavor and smoothness, different not only from the espresso machine and the percolator, but also from paper filter systems, or even the Neapolitan coffee pot. The main advantage of the press filter coffee maker is the fact that any amount of ground coffee and water can be used, giving as weak or as strong a coffee as desired. The Alessi press filter coffee maker is ideal for making coffee, but also for making tea or herbal infusions. (For best results, use for one kind of beverage only, so that any residual flavor of coffee or herbal teas do not spoil the taste of another beverage.)

Born in Milan (1931-1997), he is considered by many to be the greatest Italian architect of the second half of the 20th century. His life as an architect started with Gardella and Zanuso. An author of abstraction, reduction and brevitas, his severe language of primary shapes, geometrical patterns and silent evocation created some of the most intensely poetic works of architecture and design in his age.
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.
