Details: The Ossidiana Espresso Coffee Pot was designed by Mario Trimarchi for the manufacturer Alessi.
The multi-talented Trimarchi is one of the emerging stars of modern Italian style. His experience stretches from industrial design with Mitsubishi to architectural projects in Sicily, and it's possible to see hints of these influences in the Ossidiana Espresso Coffee Pot. This remarkable design began as a simple sketch - Trimarchi is a believer in the power of drawing to interpret the world around us.
The Ossidiana Espresso Coffee Pot is the design that won its creator the prestigious Compasso D'Oro prize. Futuristic, sculptural angles invite you to pick it up and hold it to the light: it's an abstract take on the classic stove-top coffee pot in every Italian home. Manufactured in aluminium, with a heat-resistant thermoplastic handle, there's a touch of industrial chic in the choice of materials. It's available in three sizes, with capacities of 7cl, 15cl and 30cl, all producing a reliably delicious, Italian-style espresso. Whether you need an aromatic hit to get your day started or a perfect accompaniment to after-dinner chocolates, this classic coffee pot could become part of your routine.
