Stovetop Espresso Maker 6 Cup / Perforated Handle Version

Richard Sapper for Alessi 1979 / Special Edition 2021 (North American release 2022)

18/10 Stainless Steel

[H 8"]

9090 is the first espresso coffee maker in Alessi's history, but also the first of several Compasso d'Oro awards and the first Alessi item exhibited at the MoMA in New York. "I wanted to give this machinery the features that others do not have." With these words Richard Sapper described the idea from which he started. 9090 is original not only for its special shape but also for some functional innovations such as the enlarged base that allows to maximize heat, the anti-drip spout and the lever lock that allow one to open the coffee pot with a simple gesture of the hand.

Note: Includes a stainless steel reducer filter insert to make 3 cups if one does not need a full pot. Suitable also for induction stoves.

About the Perforated Handle (Manico Forato) Version 

A version of the iconic 9090 coffee maker that pays tribute to the genius of its creator by presenting itself to the public with a handle he designed and which has never before been produced. The perforated handle, to increase heat dispersion, is a detail that is as functional as it is aesthetically expressive. The colour red was used by Richard Sapper to emphasise the mobile and intersecting elements of his designs; just like this particular handle which, in its movement, comprises an innovative closing system.
