Paying tribute to the traditional form of the iconic Moka pot and addressing the evolution of that archetype, British architect David Chipperfield has created an exciting new design for Alessi. The original two-part Moka Express stovetop espresso maker was designed by Alberto Alessi's maternal grandfather, Alfonso Bialetti. It became a seminal example of modern Italian design and was and still is found in kitchens everywhere. Chipperfield's version is familiar and innovative. The eleven-sided cast aluminum coffee maker with a magnetic steel bottom introduces a series of details that make the Moka design contemporary and adds function. Place your cup on the flat lid to be heated and raise the lid with one hand with the thoughtfully positioned knob. Enjoy the unmistakable rich flavour of coffee made in an espresso coffee maker with this sublime piece.
